PepsiCo Strengthens Its 2025 Sustainability Agenda
PURCHASE, N.Y. — PepsiCo Inc. is taking another step forward in its efforts for sustainability by 2025.
The food and beverage supplier signed an agreement with Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) to independently report and verify its progress against previously outlined goals designed to transform its product portfolio and offer healthier options.
By 2025, PepsiCo expects that:
- At least two-thirds of the company’s global beverage portfolio volume sold will have 100 calories or less from added sugars per 12-ounce serving.
- At least three-quarters of the company’s global foods portfolio volume sold will not exceed 1.1-grams of saturated fat per 100 calories.
- At least three-quarters of the company's global foods portfolio volume sold will not exceed 1.3-milligrams of sodium per calorie.
"PepsiCo's continued focus on delivering Performance with Purpose has fueled our growth and is positioning our company for future success. We continue to place great emphasis on transforming our product portfolio to meet changing consumer and societal needs, and we're proud of the progress we've achieved to date," said PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi.
"Our agenda for the next ten years includes ambitious goals to further improve the nutritional profile of our products and expand our range of wholesome and nutritious offerings. We are deeply committed to working to achieve these goals, and we welcome Partnership for a Healthier America's role in reporting on our progress,” she added.
Last October, PepsiCo announced its goals, which includes a focus on reducing added sugars, saturated fat and sodium levels. Additionally, the company is focused on offering more nutrition like whole grains, fruit and vegetables, dairy, protein and hydration, as well as greater access to nutritious foods and beverages in underserved communities.
“PepsiCo's vision to transform their products to meet consumer demand for healthier options is a win for the company and a win for consumers,” commented PHA CEO Lawrence A. Soler. “We look forward to evaluating PepsiCo's progress and sharing it publicly."
Purchase-based PepsiCo’s product portfolio includes 22 brands that generate more than $1 billion each in estimated annual retail sales. In 2016, PepsiCo generated approximately $63 billion in net revenue.
