Better With Pepsico

PepsiCo's operations in Russia are based on the "Better. Faster. Stronger" strategy. This means that the company strives to develop continuously, make consumers smile, win at every point of sale, while benefiting society and the planet.
PepsiCo is building a worldwide sustainable food system, from responsible sourcing of raw materials to responsible package recycling and investment in modern equipment to reduce its carbon footprint. The company works with suppliers that meet its social and environmental principles and promotes the regenerative agriculture practices, i. e. green fertilizers use, smart tools to control irrigation, etc.

All the PepsiCo production sites are working to reduce environmental impact. They have arranged separate waste collection and begun to reduce resource use thanks to the ReCon program.
PepsiCo is the largest food and beverage manufacturer in Russia. In this country, there are more than 20 factories that produce drinks, snacks, dairy products, and baby food. In particular, there are two large milk processing enterprises in Moscow, i.e. the Lianozovsky and Tsaritsynsky dairy factories, which were built in the 70s and 80s of the last century, and now refer to the international PepsiCo as part of the Wimm-Bill-Dann company
Together, these simple measures give tangible results. Since 2015, PepsiCo's snack factories have reduced electricity consumption by 10%, water consumption by 23%, and ensured 100% waste recycling. The juice production enterprises have decreased electricity and water consumption by 11 and 5%, respectively, and ensured 99% waste recycling. The beverage production plants have reduced energy consumption by 10%, and water consumption by 6%, with the recycling percentage equal to 94%.
In 2021, PepsiCo is planning to install solar panels at its factories in Azov and Domodedovo. PepsiCo pays a lot of attention to package recycling (for example, using recycled plastic (rPET) to make bottles). The company also uses recycled materials in other types of packaging, such as glass, aluminum and corrugated board. In Russia, PepsiCo also uses recycled polyethylene in shrink films. The rPET experiment was started in 2019, and in 2020 it became possible to almost triple the rPET amount in packaging! This year, the company has chosen to stop coloring the Mountain Dew bottles in neon green to make them fully recyclable.
Launched in 2020. The goal is to involve consumers in sorting waste.
More than 19 thousand points of separate waste collection aimed at further processing are marked on the map, and users themselves can keep the information up-to-date. At утилизируйправильно.рф (recycle correctly) you can learn how to properly sort and dispose of waste and how an individual can reduce the waste amount.
Aleksandr Kostikov,
Head of Communications, PepsiCo Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Caucasus and Central Asia:
"At the end of last year, we stopped using plastic caps for the main product line of the Imunele fermented milk drink produced at our dairy factories in Moscow, which is a small initiative that nevertheless reduces but the amount of plastic used by 150 tons a year. We are currently analyzing packaging and other products to use as little plastic as possible. And to help the consumer understand how to handle the packaging after using the product, we provide it with QR codes containing the information about the nearest collection point for further recycling".
