HELPING TO BUILD A MORE SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEM
Helping to Build a More Sustainable Food System
Over the years, the global food system has brought nutrition, economic opportunity, convenience, and enjoyment. Today, however, the global impacts of climate change, soil erosion, water scarcity, and population growth bring challenges that threaten its ability to meet our needs. The food system is in urgent need of transformation.
Our Opportunity to Lead Positive Change
At PepsiCo, we believe that there is an opportunity to change how the world produces, distributes, consumes, and disposes of foods and beverages in order to tackle the shared challenges we face.
We aim to use our scale, reach, and expertise to help build a more sustainable food system; one that can meet human needs for nutrition and enjoyment, and continue to drive economic and social development, without exceeding the natural boundaries of the planet.
As well as being good for our business, working to realize this purpose is also the right thing to do. Where our food system may be operating in an unsustainable way, it can create supply chain, operational, and financial risks for our company. By contrast, addressing risks within our value chain and the wider food system effectively can create new opportunities for competitive advantage and future market growth, while also supporting the communities in which we operate.

Our Focus Areas
PepsiCo’s sustainability agenda focuses on six overlapping priorities within our food system. Our priorities meet three important criteria: They relate to the most pressing sustainability challenges, risks, and opportunities facing PepsiCo and our food system; they matter most to PepsiCo's key external stakeholders; and they offer the opportunity for PepsiCo to make a positive difference at a systemic level, within and beyond our own value chain.
