Environmental Sustainability means finding innovative ways to cut costs and minimize our impact on the environment through energy and water conservation as well as reduced use of packaging material.


PepsiCo anticipated the need to take environmental stewardship to a whole new level at the start of the new millennium, recognizing that environmental sustainability was becoming a core component of sustainable performance.

We began to put in place the systems, processes and metrics needed to drive continuous improvement in energy and water conservation as well as greenhouse gas, packaging and waste reduction. We also advanced innovations in packaging and sustainable agriculture, and improved performance in overall productivity and plant efficiency.
