PepsiCo, Inc. announced its inclusion in the 2011 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). PepsiCo is ranked as the number one company in the DJSI Food and Beverage Supersector, the only company based in the United States to earn a top ranking in the 19 supersectors assessed. PepsiCo was also named the beverage sector leader for the third consecutive year.

PepsiCo has now been named a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index six times and the World Index five times. The DJSI is comprised of companies across all industries that outperform their peers in numerous sustainability metrics, including economic, environmental and social criteria such as corporate governance, environmental reporting, corporate citizenship and philanthropy, and talent attraction and retention.

“PepsiCo is proud to be named a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the fifth time and to be ranked the number one company in the Food & Beverage “Supersector” for the first time. We believe that a healthier future for all people and our planet means a more successful future for PepsiCo. This belief acquired us this successful position; which demonstrates our vision not only for PepsiCo but for the whole world” said Saad Abdul-Latif, CEO of PepsiCo Asia, Middle East and Africa.
PepsiCo has made major strides in its Performance with Purpose journey with the establishment of goals and commitments across the areas of Human, Environmental and Talent Sustainability.

The company’s progress against these commitments is discussed at http://www.pepsico.com/annual10/performance/promise-of-pepsico.html . In addition, in-depth reports measuring PepsiCo’s global performance in areas such as water, sustainable agriculture, and health and wellness can be found at http://www.pepsico.com/Purpose/Sustainability-Reporting.html.

Launched in 1999, DJSI is the first global investment index tracking the financial performance of the leading sustainability-driven companies worldwide. The DJSI World Index identifies companies that exemplify leadership in sustainability among the leading 10 percent of the world's top 2,500 companies in the Dow Jones Global Total Stock Market Index in terms of economic, environmental and social criteria. The DJSI North America Index covers the leading 20% in terms of sustainability of the 600 biggest North American companies.
