No formal public reply. PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi requested a meeting with Oxfam staff who were handing out materials at company headquarters in the US. They discussed Oxfam’s report in a 30 minute meeting. In the meeting Nooyi was surprised and disappointed that PepsiCo scored lower than its competitors.
It is promising that Indra Nooyi is paying personal attention to the sustainability of PepsiCo’s operations. We hope that this senior level involvement will ensure that PepsiCo makes new public commitments to address areas where the company falls short in our scorecard including land, women, farmers, workers, and climate change.
