PepsiCo has announced ambitious plans to dramatically reduce the sugar content in its drinks as part of its sustainable growth strategy for 2025.

These goals aim to continue “transforming PepsiCo’s food and beverage product portfolio”.

Its goals include: At least two-thirds of its global beverage portfolio volume will have 100 calories or fewer from added sugars per 12-oz serving by 2025; at least three-quarters of its global foods portfolio volume will not exceed 1.3 milligrams of sodium per calorie by 2025; and the company will provide access to at least three billion servings of nutritious foods and beverages to underserved communities and consumers.

PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi says: “We have mapped our plans against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and we believe the steps we are taking will help lift PepsiCo to even greater heights in the year ahead. Companies like PepsiCo have a tremendous opportunity – as well as a responsibility – to not only make a profit, but to do so in a way that makes a difference in the world.”

Also included in their sustainability targets are commitments to significantly reduce carbon emissions, particularly those related to agriculture and packaging. Other elements of the plan include increased efforts in water preservation, sustainable sourcing of crops and the reduction of waste.
