PepsiCo helped more than 10 million people gain access to safe water, bringing the total to more than 91 million since 2006, according to the company’s 2023 progress report on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).

In 2023, PepsiCo achieved some goals ahead of schedule, introduced new ones and made strong progress on others, while certain goals, including with respect to packaging, continue to present challenges.
Through a wide range of innovation, strategic investment, ground-breaking partnerships and the multitude of actions pursued by its 318,000 global associates.

The company reduced Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 13% and total Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 5% year over year.

PepsiCo also reduced its use of virgin plastic derived from non-renewable sources by 4% year over year; doubled our global regenerative farming footprint to more than 1.8 million acres; and recorded a 25% improvement in water-use efficiency at high water-risk company-owned locations when compared to a 2015 baseline—reaching this goal two years ahead of schedule.

It also introduced two new goals to reduce sodium and deliver diverse ingredients—36%6,7 of its foods volume was at or below these new sodium targets and the company delivered 75 billion7,8 portions of diverse ingredients.

“Three years into our pep+ journey, it’s clear the focus we have driven throughout the business is working in many areas. Our use of virgin plastics is down year-over-year and our total Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions are down compared to 2022, as well as versus our 2015 baseline. This is all to be celebrated. However, the road ahead will continue to present challenges,” said Jim Andrew, Chief Sustainability Officer at PepsiCo.

“We continue assessing where to devote time and resources to deliver meaningful impact and ensure we are focusing our efforts. Building strong and strategic partnerships with other scale players and adopting and scaling breakthrough technologies are central to our strategy.”
