PepsiCo has embarked on a 2030 business transformation that puts the environment and human capital at the center of the business choices that are made. The company call this pep+ (PepsiCo Positive), and it embodies the company’s targets to become net water positive and achieve net-zero emissions. As a leading CPG company, PepsiCo is committed to becoming net water positive by 2030 and achieving net-zero emissions across the entire value chain (Scope 1, 2 & 3) by 2040.
As part of this journey, PepsiCo conducted a pilot to look for cost-effective and sustainable alternatives to improve existing wastewater management at the company’s bottling facility in Fresno, California. Aquacycl and PepsiCo installed an onsite treatment system for wastewater from crusher operations, demonstrating both sustainability and operational benefits.
