PepsiCo has announced plans to double down on its climate goal, pledging to reduce its absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across its value chain by more than 40% by 2030.
The beverage giant has also committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2040, one decade earlier than called for in the Paris Agreement. This follows Coca-Cola European Partners which announced the same target last month.
More specifically, PepsiCo plans to reduce absolute GHG emissions across its direct operations by 75% and its indirect value chain by 40% by 2030. This is expected to reduce more than 26 million metric tons of GHG emissions.
In order to decarbonise its operations and supply chain, PepsiCo will focus on areas such as agriculture, packaging, distribution and operations.
