Pepsi Co Sustainability

PepsiCo is planning to reduce absolute GHG emissions across its direct operations by 75% and its indirect value chain by 40% by 2030, which will result in the elimination of more than 26 million metric tons of GHG emissions. Guided by leading science-based measures and cost-benefit analysis, PepsiCo’s sustainability strategy focuses on the areas where it can have the most impact, as well as creating scalable models and partnerships for accelerated progress across the full value chain.

Specifically, the company will further scale sustainable agriculture and regenerative practices, since agriculture accounts for approximately one-third of PepsiCo’s emissions; continue reducing virgin plastic use and increase recycled content in its packaging; implement and upgrade environmentally sustainable manufacturing, warehousing, transportation, and distribution sites; and implement business processes that enable GHG emissions mitigation by putting environmental impact decision-making at the heart of product design.
