Our Code is at the center of everything we do. It reinforces our core Values and is the
foundation of our strategic mission of Performance with Purpose – in fact, it is the purpose
behind our performance.
Responsibility for Our Code
Our Code applies to every employee, and to our Board of Directors; it governs every business decision we make.
Our Code governs all our decisions and actions, whether in our offices, plants
or warehouses, in the boardroom or in the trade selling our products to customers.
Our Code applies to:
• All PepsiCo employees around the world (including employees of our subsidiaries)
• Members of the PepsiCo Board of Directors when they act in their capacity as directors
• PepsiCo’s joint ventures over which PepsiCo has management control, and to every employee, officer and director of such joint ventures
PepsiCo’s Global Compliance and Ethics Department (“Global Compliance”) is accountable for promoting, monitoring and enforcing our Code. However, the ultimate responsibility for following our Code and for maintaining PepsiCo’s culture of ethical excellence rests with each one of us individually.
