PepsiCo has released its Performance with Purpose Corporate Sustainability Report for 2006-2007.
Here are some of the numbers:
Frito-Lay North America (FLNA) reduced its fuel, electricity and water consumption by 4%, 1.6% and 6% respectively compared to 2005. When compared to the baseline year of 1999, FLNA manufacturing has reduced fuel use by 24%, electric use by 19% and water use by 35% per unit of product made.
QTG’s (Quaker/Tropicana/Gatorade) performance in 2006 resulted in reductions compared to the prior year of 7% in fuels, 11% in electricity and 5% in water per unit of product produced. Measured against QTG manufacturing’s more recent baseline year of 2004, usage is 24% lower in fuels, 24% lower in electricity and 10% lower in water per pound or gallon of QTG product.
Beverage Concentrate Operations, including 12 plants throughout the world, reduced overall energy use per unit of production by 21% between 2003 and 2006, with further targets set.
Pepsi-Cola U.S. bottling operations, which is a franchise system, reduced water use ratios (gallons vs gallons of product) by more than 2% versus prior year and had almost a 1% increase in energy use/8 oz. case versus prior year. The company says that the rise in energy use was the result of increased manufacturing of PET bottles at the bottling plants versus off-site manufacturing.
The water data represents 61% of the bottler unit case sales in 2005 and 83% in 2006. Energy data represents 81% of bottler unit case sales in 2005 and 83% in 2006.
