Project Overview

In GB, together with the Coca-Cola Foundation, we are also working with WWF on a three-year programme to improve water quality and replenish water sources in East Anglia, an area where much of the sugar we use is grown. The programme will employ farm advisors to work with local farmers on water efficiency and stewardship programmes in the area. The project has also expanded to support urban water projects. In 2020, 1.7 billion litres of water were replenished as a result.

Project Narrative

We continue to be focused on improving our water-use efficiency in our manufacturing facilities, with a particular focus on high-water-risk locations. Our 2025 water operations goal is to achieve a 25 percent efficiency improvement in high-water-risk areas. In 2019 PepsiCo had 71 high-water-risk manufacturing locations as defined by our internal water risk assessment process. These locations span five continents and 16 countries and account for more than a quarter of our company-owned production. Eight of our top 15 revenue markets have manufacturing operations in high-water-risk locations. In 2019, we recorded a nine percent efficiency improvement in our water-use efficiency rate at our high-water-risk locations when compared to our 2015 baseline. This improvement builds on the work that we have been focused on for the last decade, in which we improved water-use efficiency per unit of production by 25 percent through 2015, against a baseline of 2006 in our legacy operations.
