PEPSICO COMMITS TO SAFE WATER ACCESS


As part of PepsiCo’s Positive transformation, it has progressed with its ambition to become Net Water Positive by 2030, aiming to replenish more water than the company uses, and also supporting the UN’s sustainable development goals which act as a blueprint for a sustainable future for all. Goal 6 is to ensure universal access to water and sanitation by 2030.


PepsiCo recognises water as a human right and aims to reduce absolute water use by replenishing more than 100% of the water it uses back into the local watershed.


There are three guiding pillars within the PepsiCo Positive, with water falling under the Positive value chain pillar. One of the ways the company will achieve these targets is by looking at the four ways water is used, namely agricultural use efficiency, manufacturing efficiency, safe water access to communities, and the Greater Cape Town Water Fund. The latter supports nature-based solutions led by the Nature Conservancy, such as the removal of invasive alien plants in the greater Cape Town watershed.


Additionally, PepsiCo recently finalised a multi-year agreement with the World Wide Fund for Nature to focus on improving water security in South Africa.
