PepsiCo continues to make investments to conserve energy and raw materials, reduce waste in its facilities, recycle containers, use renewable resources and optimise packaging design to use fewer materials.
In Europe, 25 of PepsiCo’s manufacturing facilities have achieved the goal of zero waste sent to landfill.
In 2013, nearly 93% of total waste generated by more than 280 company-owned manufacturing facilities was put to beneficial use, such as recycling or reuse; only 7.2% was disposed of through more traditional methods, such as landfills. This has been delivered through effective measurement systems, developing solutions to eliminate waste and strong engagement with employees.
Beyond the production process, PepsiCo is always looking for innovative ways to cut packaging waste as part of its Global Sustainable Packaging Policy.
