Through our new People goals, we will advance respect for human rights, promote diversity and engagement, and spur social and economic development in communities around the world.
In our own operations, PepsiCo considers it essential to protect and support the safety, health, professional development and human rights of our employees. Fostering a diverse and engaging culture—part of our company’s proud history— promoting women’s equal advancement, and offering policies and benefits for working caregivers are some of the ways we continue to attract the talent base needed to grow our business. We also support our value chain partners to take the same approach to talent development and workers’ rights. We are proud to have invested more than $850 million since 2006 to support communities where we operate, including grants by the PepsiCo Foundation.
PepsiCo has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere® Institute for 10 consecutive years and was included in Fortune Magazine’s Change the World 2016 list, 50 companies that do well by doing good.
In 2015, PepsiCo improved safety practices within our manufacturing operations while increasing the number of on-site health clinics and free wellness screenings. In addition, we continued to strengthen diversity across our company, including the representation of women and people of color. Finally, our support for human rights was extended to more suppliers and their workers through our Supplier Code of Conduct training and through the significant growth of our Sustainable Farming Initiative.
