Coke and Pepsi save water
To mark World Water Week recently, both Coca-Cola and PepsiCo showed how seriously they have acted on water stewardship and waste.
PepsiCo declared it had provided 9 million people with access to safe water since 2005. Coca-Cola has reached a further 2 million in Africa.
PepsiCo reduced its absolute water usage in 2015, despite manufacturing volume growth.
Coca-Cola announced it had become the first Fortune 500 company to replenish more water than it uses. In 2015, it used 300 billion litres and returned 338 billion litres. The Coke system now uses 27% less water per litre of product than in 2004, just 1.98 litres per litre of product.
