The savings were achieved through the company’s water management, energy, sustainable packaging and waste-reduction initiatives. During the same time period, the company delivered double-digit net revenue and operating profit growth.

Highlights of Pepsi’s 2014 environmental sustainability progress:

Reduced its water use per unit of production by 23 percent since 2006, already exceeding its public target of a 20 percent reduction by the end of the 2015. This delivered cost savings of about $17 million in 2014. In addition, the company’s absolute water use decreased by about 1 billion liters in 2014.

Held absolute greenhouse gas emissions for legacy operations flat against a 2008 baseline despite significant production volume growth in its business. By driving best practices through its Resource Conservation program and investments in greener fleet initiatives, such as alternative fuels and electric-vehicle delivery trucks - PepsiCo has improved the energy efficiency of legacy operations by nearly 16 percent compared with its 2006 baseline.

Diverted 93 percent of its waste from reaching landfills, surpassing its goal of recycling and reusing 90 percent of its waste. The company decreased the overall amount of packaging by 89 million pounds in 2014 versus the prior year, and used 134 million pounds of food-grade recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) packages and bottles, an increase of 23 percent from 2013.

Deployed its Sustainable Farming Initiative (SFI) to growers across 11 countries in 2014 and increased acres covered by more than 20 percent over the prior year. SFI guides global suppliers in sustainable agricultural practices and provides them with resources, training and support to meet Pepsi’s social, economic and environmental standards.

Through its philanthropic arm the PepsiCo Foundation, the company met its goal to partner to provide access to safe water to 6 million people in developing countries by the end of 2015.

In addition to the PepsiCo Sustainability Report and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Report, the company has launched a companion microsite, howwillwe.com, which is an interactive platform to explore and share ideas about issues relevant to the world and to Pepsi’s business.
