To achieve its goal of sustainable business growth – what the company calls Performance with Purpose – PepsiCo has set specific goals that guide its strategy and operations. Progress on these goals is highlighted in PepsiCo’s new 2013 Corporate Sustainability Report and 2013 Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Report, and includes:
- Saving 14 billion litres of water through operational efficiency programs, translating to approximately $ 15 million in savings; and avoiding $ 3 million in landfill costs through PepsiCo’s Resource Conservation initiatives.
- Increasing the total amount of material recycled to more than 18 million pounds and 324 million containers since 2010.
- Expanding sourcing of certified sustainable agriculture raw materials, including 100 percent of potato and seed growers in Chile certified to the Rainforest Alliance standards, and achieving one of the first Fairtrade certifications in its category for Naked Coconut Water in the U.S.
These actions and broader company initiatives were recently recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). PepsiCo was named to the DJSI North America Index for the ninth consecutive year and by the DJSI World Index for the eighth consecutive year with perfect scores in the areas of Code of Conduct/ Compliance/ Corruption & Bribery, Risk & Crisis Management, Packaging, Labour Practices and Human Rights, and Raw Material Sourcing. PepsiCo is also the Beverage Industry Leader in North America.
