PURCHASE, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE: PEP) today announced that it has been recognized by the  Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) North America for the eighth consecutive year, and by the DJSI World for the seventh consecutive year.  Inclusion in the DJSI recognizes the company's leadership and continued innovation in sustainable business practices through Performance with Purpose, PepsiCo's goal to provide sustained value.  The company also announced the release of its 2011/2012 Corporate Sustainability Report and its first-ever stand-alone Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Report.   


"Performance with Purpose fuels our growth and allows us to stay ahead of trends shaping our industry and the world in which we operate," said Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo.  "We are steadfastly dedicated to building a profitable and sustainable 21st century corporation — one that is a good investment for our shareholders, a good environment for our employees, a good citizen in our communities and a good steward of our planet's resources."

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, risk management, energy efficiency, and occupational health and safety. The DJSI analysis of PepsiCo's performance included perfect scores in the areas of Code of Conduct/Compliance, Risk & Crisis Management, Packaging and Raw Material Sourcing, evidencing the company's strengths in these important areas.
