Our commitment to performance with purpose through our products, planet and people goals
Our Performance with Purpose efforts are aimed at delivering top-tier performance while being responsive to the needs of the world around us. Through our 2025 Agenda, we are making progress on our goals, which aim to deliver change across our company, value chain, industry and the world.
“The global food system is at an inflection point. The vast network of farmers, traders, processors, suppliers, manufacturers and retailers that feed our world must embrace change. This year, I have been inspired by the response to our new Performance with Purpose goals. We understand that there is much more to be done to achieve our objectives, but we also know that, by working together, we will succeed in creating a healthier and more sustainable future for us all.”

PERFORMANCE WITH PURPOSE IN ACTION
We continue to build on our decade-plus commitment to Performance with Purpose with specific and time-bound goals across focus areas we call Products, Planet and People. Below, learn more about our 2025 goals in each of these areas.
Through our Products goals, we will continue to refine our food & beverage choices to meet changing consumer needs by reducing added sugars, saturated fat and salt, and by developing a broader portfolio of product choices, reaching more underserved communities and consumers. View each of our 2025 goals below and learn more about how we will achieve them.
2025 GOAL: At least 2/3 of our global beverage portfolio volume will have 100 Calories or fewer from added sugars per 12-oz. serving
2025 GOAL: At least 3/4 of our global foods portfolio volume will not exceed 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 Calories
2025 GOAL: At least 3/4 of our global foods portfolio volume will not exceed 1.3 milligrams of sodium per Calorie
2025 GOAL: The rate of sales growth of what we refer to as our Everyday Nutrition products will outpace the rate of sales growth in the balance of our product offerings. Specifically, we will work to:
- Increase positive nutrition - like whole grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy, protein and hydration - by expanding our portfolio containing one or more of these ingredients
- Provide access to at least 3 billion servings of nutritious foods and beverages to underserved communities and consumers through the PepsiCo Foundation - with an increasing focus on products that are locally sourced and produced, and readily accessible
Through our Planet goals, we aim to reduce our environmental impact while growing our business and helping to meet the food, beverage and natural resource needs of our changing world. View each of our 2025 goals below and learn more about how we will achieve them.
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: Work to provide 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.
2030 GOAL: In support of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and call to combat climate change and its impacts, work to reduce absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across our value chain by at least 20% to do our part to limit global temperature increase to below 2° Celsius
2020 and 2025 GOALS: Through PepsiCo's Sustainable Farming Program (SFP) or equivalent industry programs, strive to sustainably source our direct agricultural raw materials by 2020; and seek to sustainably source our non-direct major agricultural raw material ingredients by 2025
2020 GOAL: Building on our earlier goal, continue to invest in the necessary measures to complete our plans to sustainably source 100% of palm oil and cane sugar by 2020
2025 GOAL: Strive to achieve zero waste to landfill across all of our direct operations through efficient and responsible waste management
2025 GOAL: Work to reduce the food waste we generate in our direct operations by 50%
2025 GOAL: Strive to design 100% of our packaging to be recyclable, compostable or biodegradable, increase recycled materials in our plastic packaging, reduce packaging’s carbon impact, and in partnership with the PepsiCo Foundation, work to increase recycling rates.
Through our new People goals, we will work to advance respect for human rights, promote diversity and engagement, and spur prosperity and economic development in communities around the world. View each of our 2025 goals below and learn more about how we will achieve them.
2025 GOAL: Continue to advance respect for human rights in our operations and with third-party suppliers consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and extend the principles of our Global Code of Conduct to all franchisees and joint venture partners
2025 GOAL: Work to expand our Sustainable Farming Program (SFP) across approximately 7 million acres to increase environmentally responsible agricultural practices, improve crop yields and growers' livelihoods, and advance respect for workers' fundamental human rights; the expanded SFI includes action in crops that collectively represent approximately 75% of PepsiCo's current agricultural-based spend
2025 GOAL: Continue to develop a diverse, inclusive and engaged workforce that reflects the global communities where we do business; strive to achieve gender parity in our management roles and pay equity for women; and support working caregivers
2025 GOAL: In partnership with the PepsiCo Foundation, invest $100 million to support initiatives to benefit at least 12.5 million women and girls around the world in communities near where we work
