Sustainable Food System
POSITIVE WATER IMPACT
Water is fundamental to our food system and to PepsiCo’s business. It nourishes the crops used to make our products, is the main ingredient in many of our beverages and an integral component of our manufacturing operations. But in some regions water is scarce, and climate change is worsening pressures on water resources around the globe. Estimates indicate that by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed regions.
PepsiCo’s positive water impact strategy focuses on improving water stewardship across our business and in regions where we operate. Our ultimate goal is to support long-term, sustainable water security for all users, especially in high water-risk areas.
As well as taking action in our own value chain, we aim to use our expertise and influence to advocate for the local policies and practices that can protect and replenish watersheds.
In Australia and New Zealand we have reduced water consumption at our manufacturing sites by more than 60% since 2006.
