Water-use efficiency in agriculture:
2025 GOAL: Improve the water-use efficiency of our direct agricultural supply chain by 15% in high-water-risk* sourcing areas, a volume approximately equivalent to the entire water use of all PepsiCo direct operations
Water-use efficiency** and WASH in direct operations:
2025 GOAL: Build on the 25% improvement in water-use efficiency achieved to date with an additional 25% improvement by 2025, with a focus on manufacturing operations in high-water-risk areas
2025 GOAL: Maximize water reuse in high-water-risk areas and ensure that 100% of wastewater from our operations meets PepsiCo's high standards for protection of the environment
2025 GOAL: Ensure appropriate access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for 100% of our own manufacturing employees
2025 GOAL: Replenish 100% of the water we consume in manufacturing operations located in high-water-risk areas, ensuring that such replenishment takes place in the same watershed where the extraction has occurred
Respect for water as a human right:
2025 GOAL: Advocate for strong water governance in communities and watersheds where we operate, promoting water solutions that meet local water needs
2025 GOAL: Initiate and support collaborative efforts with other stakeholders to address water risk and mitigate water insecurity
2025 GOAL: With the PepsiCo Foundation and its partners, work to provide access to safe water to a total of 25 million people since 2006 in the world's most at-water-risk areas, with a focus on communities near where PepsiCo works
*Water risk will be informed by the World Resources Institute's Aqueduct tool as well as internal and external expertise.
**Water-use efficiency benchmarking for our beverage operations will be informed by the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) tools. Water-use efficiency benchmarking for snacks operations requires additional development with peers and third parties.
