PepsiCo Educates its supply chain to acheive a higher environmental standard. There is a resource conservation program that sets goals on how to reduce greenhouse gases, gain energy more efficiently and reserve forestry as well as agriculture. PepsiCo has a membership with CDP supply chain to work collaboratively and show that they care about climate change. Changes have been proven with a 51% response rate in the number of suppliers working in the CDP program.
Product quality and supplier standards
PepsiCo uses high quality and affordable agricultural raw materials to not only meet the expectations of its customers but the efficiency needed in the business itself. It uses a complex global supply chain that includes minimal company owned farms and thousands of independent farmers. Suppliers work under a four sided process to meet the standards of the company, "Accountability, Engagement, Risk Assessment and Mitigation".PepsiCo has a Supplier Code of Conduct by "The Global Compact" to clarify their global expectations.
Supplier diversity
Such as other social responsibilities, PepsiCo is committed to support of diverse suppliers. In 2012 they spent 1.4 billion on minority and women owned suppliers to not only boost minority communities but to built economic wealth. Overall, PepsiCo strives for the growth of all the diverse suppliers in all communities they are involved in.
Rural Development
PepsiCo establishes supply arrangements to not only large farming units bt also to low-income providers with small units. In Mexico, they increased development of high-oleic acid sunflower oil (HOSO) from by 136 tons to 180 tons in one year by targeting farmers. In India, they contact 24,000 potato farmers with small holdings to assist them with production of Lay's chips material. Since beginning work in the Algeria Valle del Cauca area in 2008, PepsiCo has increased the amount of sustainably sourced plantains by almost 550 percent for their other chip brands. It is a clear fact that they assist poor communities while also increasing their brand's name.
