The PepsiCo India system has made significant progress in recent years to align its business interests with those of India. For example:
- PepsiCo India achieved Positive Water Balance in 2010, replenishing more water than it uses in each successive year. PepsiCo's work with Indian farmers has reduced the amount of water used in rice cultivation, conserving more than 12 billion liters of water in 2012 alone.
- More than 40 percent of the energy requirement of PepsiCo's company-owned food and beverage plants in India comes from renewable sources. PepsiCo's food plants in Pune, Kolkata and Channo each have installed biomass boilers, enabling 70 percent of the energy needs of these facilities to be met through renewable energy.
- PepsiCo's Sathariya beverage plant was awarded LEED Gold Green Factory Building Certification by the Indian Green Building Council in 2013, marking India's first beverage or food plant to receive this distinguished certification.
- PepsiCo continues to expand its Quaker and Tropicana offerings in India to meet growing consumer demand for convenient and nutritional products.
- NourishCo, a joint venture between Tata Global Beverages and PepsiCo, launched Tata Water Plus, India's first nutrient water.
