As a global leader, PepsiCo has long-recognized our responsibility to play a positive role in tackling climate change – for the future of our business and the health of our planet. Over the past few years, we’ve accelerated these efforts, from developing an industry-leading showcase facility for sustainable manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution technologies at our Frito-Lay site in Modesto, California, to signing the UN’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C pledge, which committed us to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
We’re excited to announce our latest step on that journey: PepsiCo is transitioning to 100% renewable electricity globally. We will do this first across our company owned operations by 2030, with an aim for our entire global operations, including franchisees, by 2040.
“We know the responsibility that comes with our size and scale, so transitioning PepsiCo's global business operations to 100% renewable electricity is the right step forward to deliver meaningful impact as we continue to advance our sustainability agenda.”
PepsiCo Chief Sustainability Officer
We currently buy renewable electricity in 18 countries – nine of which already get 100% of their electricity from renewable sources – and we are on track to source 56% renewable electricity by the end of the year. You can learn more about our transition here.
