Deze mini-energiecentrale heeft in totaal 2.448 Kyocera solar panels die gezamelijk ongeveer 78 MegaWatt per jaar aan duurzame energie moeten gaan opwekken.

Geweldig. Dat zouden veel meer bedrijven moeten doen. Gewoon zelf voorzien in de energievraag op een duurzame manier.

    Recycling With Purpose by PepsiCo

    PepsiCo is supporting a circular economy for plastics in Latin America through innovative investments in consumer engagement programs, working with grassroots recyclers, and more.

    In an efficient food system, packaging helps make safe, high-quality products accessible to all, extending shelf life and helping to limit food waste. But, for it to have a role in a more sustainable food system, we must eliminate packaging waste.

    PepsiCo have set an ambitious target to reduce 35 percent of virgin plastic use across our beverage portfolio by 2025. Progress will be driven by the increased use of recycled content and alternative packaging materials. Across PepsiCo’s business and our brands, we’ve made it a business imperative to help build a circular future for packaging and a world where plastics need never become waste.

    At PepsiCo, we’re striving to build a world where plastics need never become waste. We share concern over the growing threat that plastic packaging waste poses to our communities and marine environments. As one of the world’s leading food and beverage companies, we recognize the significant role we can play in helping to change the way society makes, uses, and disposes of plastics, and we are doing our part to help make sustainable plastics a reality.

    Our sustainable plastics vision is rooted in three pillars: Reducing the amount of plastics we use; Recycling the plastics we bring to market; and Reinventing our plastic packaging.

    We know it will take big ideas and even bigger goals to get there. So, we’re already hard at work. We committed to making 100% of our packaging recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable by 2025, and we are striving to use 25% recycled plastic content in our plastic packaging by 2025. Additionally, we aim to reduce 35% of virgin plastic use across our beverage portfolio and, driven by SodaStream, avoid an estimated 67 billion single-use plastic bottles by 2025.

    How PepsiCo Sources Only Sustainably Farmes Potatoes In North-America

    In 2018, 100% of the potatoes used to make Frito Lay products sold in the U.S. & Canada were sustainably sourced. See how we’re working with farmers through our Sustainable Farming Program.

    Agriculture is central to both global challenges and solutions related to nutrition, the environment and economic well-being. PepsiCo believes that sustainable agricultural practices will be pivotal in meeting the increasing demand for food as the global population grows, while also addressing the need to manage natural resources. These practices will be imperative toward overcoming challenges that can be associated with agriculture, such as use of the majority of the world’s available freshwater, and in some parts of the world, deforestation, biodiversity loss and soil degradation. At the same time, sustainable agricultural practices have demonstrated positive social and economic impacts, providing jobs for more than one billion people around the world and serving as the backbone of many local economies.

    PepsiCo’s size and scale position us to be a leader in next generation agriculture and to catalyze change in collaboration with other businesses, governments and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). By prioritizing sustainable agriculture, we are not only supporting positive social, environmental and economic outcomes throughout our supply chain, but we are also enabling PepsiCo’s continued business growth for the long term and its license to operate in the short term.

    Our objective is to advance farming practices to optimize crop yields, respect human rights, improve farmer livelihoods, and secure supply as part of our aim to build a more sustainable food system. This means: Creating ambitious commitments, goals and standards for ourselves and our supply chain; Adopting processes that measure and manage performance against those standards, support farmers and suppliers, and support our business priorities; Maintaining robust and clear governance and management to oversee and deliver our commitment; and Engaging and collaborating with industry, NGOs, governments and others to find solutions to systemic issues.

    PepsiCo have set standards for ourselves and our supply chain that match our ambition for a sustainable agricultural supply chain over the long term. We are publicly committed to sustainably source potatoes, oats, whole corn, oranges, palm oil and cane sugar for our business by 2020, and other priority crops that we don’t source directly from farmers by 2025. We continue to make progress, and in 2018: 99% of the agricultural raw materials we sourced directly were grown by farmers engaged in PepsiCo’s Sustainable Farming Program (SFP), an increase from 79% in 2017; 51% of the agricultural raw materials we sourced directly through the SFP were sustainably sourced, an increase from 24% in 2017; 23% of the traceable non-direct major agricultural raw materials we sourced were sustainably sourced based on SFP or equivalent programs, an increase from 15% in 2017 Prior period results for this metric have been adjusted to reflect currently available information.; 52% of the palm oil we sourced was Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified, an increase from 32% in 2017; 58% of the cane sugar we sourced was sustainably sourced as Bonsucro certified, an increase from 34% in 2017.

    PepsiCo Plans To Achieve 100% Renewable Energy In The U.S.

    Some of America’s favorite snacks and beverages – from Lay’s and SunChips to bubly, Gatorade and Pepsi – will soon be made using electricity from renewable sources, such as wind and solar. PepsiCo, Inc. (NASDAQ:PEP) today announced plans to achieve 100% renewable electricity for its U.S. direct operations this year. The U.S. is the food and beverage company’s largest market and accounts for nearly half of its total global electricity consumption.

    “We have entered a decade that will be critical for the future of our planet’s health,” said Ramon Laguarta, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, PepsiCo. “PepsiCo is pursuing 100% renewable electricity in the U.S. because the severe threat that climate change poses to the world demands faster and bolder action from all of us.”

    PepsiCo’s shift to renewable electricity in the U.S. this year is expected to deliver a 20% reduction in company-wide direct operations (Scopes 1 and 2) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions relative to a 2015 baseline. This represents a significant contribution to the company’s goal of reducing absolute GHG emissions across its global value chain by 20% by 2030 against a 2015 baseline.

    “As an industry leader, we have a responsibility to help spur the use of renewable energy in the U.S., while encouraging the kind of systemic change that can build a more sustainable food system. This is another step forward in that journey,” said Simon Lowden, Chief Sustainability Officer, PepsiCo.

    To achieve 100% renewable electricity, PepsiCo plans to target a diversified portfolio of solutions. These include Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPAs), which finance the development of new renewable electricity projects such as solar and wind farms, as well as renewable energy certificates (RECs), which are credits certified by independent third parties that support existing green electricity generation from renewable sources. In 2020, PepsiCo’s portfolio will feature more RECs, then will gradually move toward PPAs and VPPAs by 2025.

    Alongside these measures, PepsiCo continues to expand its onsite renewable electricity. The company recently installed new solar panels at its global headquarters in Purchase, N.Y., complementing other solar energy installations throughout the country. These include Frito-Lay facilities in Modesto, CA and Casa Grande, AZ, as well as PepsiCo beverage facilities in Fresno, CA and Tolleson, AZ, among others.
