PepsiCo, Inc. continues its progress with its strategy to help protect and conserve global water supplies and provide people access to clean, safe water to communities around the world.
In 2015, PepsiCo reduced its operational water use per unit of production by 26 percent versus a 2006 baseline. This exceeded the company's previously stated goal to reduce operational water use by 20 percent by the end of 2015.
PepsiCo's water conservation efforts saved the company more than $80 million between 2011-2015. This is part of PepsiCo's broader environmental sustainability agenda, which has delivered more than $600 million in cost savings over the past five years through the continued progress of the company's water, energy, packaging and waste-reduction initiatives.
PepsiCo also continues to expand its efforts to provide access to safe water in water-stressed communities around the world. Through the PepsiCo Foundation, the company has partnered with leading non-profit organizations to reach 9 million people with safe water access since 2006, far exceeding its original goal of 6 million by the end of 2015.
PepsiCo's global water efforts are part of the company's broader commitment to Performance with Purpose, a fundamental belief that business success is inextricably linked to the sustainability of the world around us. For nearly 10 years, PepsiCo has committed to growing its business in ways that meet the changing expectations of consumers and help solve complex challenges facing society.
