Segment ranking summary

PepsiCo ranks fifth among its peers in the food and beverage manufacturers/processors segment, demonstrating leadership in this group. The company leads most of its peers in the governance and strategy, environment and nutrition measurement areas but achieves an average score when it comes to social inclusion. It is ahead of its peers in its commitments to reduce GHG emissions and eliminate plastic waste but lags behind in reducing food loss and waste. While PepsiCo demonstrates that it is improving the nutritional quality of its products, it does not demonstrate sufficient evidence of improving the accessibility and affordability of its healthy products. Finally, PepsiCo leads its peers in its commitment to protecting the land rights of local communities, requiring suppliers to meet free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) standards. However, it does not demonstrate sufficient evidence that it is addressing other basic human rights issues, such as child and forced labour.
