PepsiCo has a long track record of improving the environmental impact of its coolers and vending machines. Since 2007, PepsiCo has saved more than 1.13MM metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions - the equivalent of removing more than 234,000 cars from the road, according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calculations. On average, PepsiCo's coolers consume 63 percent less energy than 2004 models, and our vending machines use 54 percent less energy than 2004 models.
In addition to reducing energy consumption, we also continue to focus on using natural refrigerants - hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon dioxide (CO2) - to phase out harmful HFCs from our machines.
Our global goal: phase-out all HFC systems by 2025
As part of our PWP 2.0 (announced in 2016) we aim to phase out all new HFC systems by 2025. This is in alignment with the CGF (Consumer Goods Forum) Refrigeration Resoultion from 2016.
Our goal for the US: phase out all HFC systems by 2020
In aligment with what was communicated in order to support the Obama Climate Act, we are committed to phase out all HFC units in the US market by no later than 2020.
