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.
