PepsiCo and Alibaba and other 20 enterprises launched the “carbon reduction friendly action” to contribute a new model of green and low carbon

With the establishment of the goals of “carbon peak” and “carbon neutralization” in China, more and more brands have responded to the call and initiated actions to reduce carbon.

Recently, a “carbon reduction friendly action” jointly initiated by 20 enterprises has attracted the attention of the industry.

Next, let’s focus on it.

“Carbon reduction friendly action”

Under the guidance of China’s double carbon goal of “carbon peak” by 2030 and “carbon neutral” by 2060, with the increasingly urgent demand for carbon reduction from the consumption supply chain to the industrial supply chain, the green and low-carbon transformation of China’s supply chain logistics industry is imperative.

In this context, we have jointly launched the “carbon reduction friendly action” plan with 20 leading brands in the retail consumption industry, including PepsiCo, with the purpose of building and improving the carbon reduction capacity of enterprises, cultivating and improving the carbon reduction mentality of consumers, and pooling the efforts of all to improve the efficiency and innovation of carbon reduction in the consumption field through our own practice and exploration.

It is understood that in this action, PepsiCo will join hands with Cainiao, the logistics coordination platform of Ali, the strategic green partner of the industry, to jointly explore the broad prospect of building a sustainable green supply chain in China. The “carbon reduction friendly action” plan is specifically implemented through the “carbon reduction friendly action guide”, focusing on the three scenarios of “low-carbon goods”, “low-carbon logistics” and “low-carbon marketing” closely related to consumer goods enterprises.

Xiaoshidai noticed that with the outstanding progress made in ESG related fields such as green carbon reduction, sustainable operation and industrial chain upgrading, Pepsi Cola and Quaker, the two iconic brands of Pepsi, were selected as advanced brand practice cases in the carbon reduction friendly action guide released by Alibaba.

Accelerating the implementation of “positive plan”

PepsiCo said that the low-carbon development achievements displayed by PepsiCo and Quaker, together with ALI Cainiao under the guidance of the “carbon reduction friendly action” plan, are not only the excellent implementation practice of the company’s “positive” vision in accelerating the green and low-carbon transformation of the industry, but also reflect PepsiCo’s efforts in the field of carbon reduction in recent years from the traditional production and manufacturing links to the consumer market product end Actively lay out beneficial exploration of green carbon reduction in the whole link.

Previously, xiaoshidai has introduced that Pepsi’s overall business strategic transformation “Pepsi positive plan (PEP +)” launched in 2021 is driven by the three pillars of positive agriculture, positive value chain and positive products, and is committed to building a more sustainable, renewable and inclusive food and beverage system.

So specifically, how does PepsiCo’s “carbon reduction friendly action” work in “low-carbon goods”

Low carbon goods

Speaking of the achievements of Pepsi’s low-carbon action, the first thing to mention is Pepsi Cola’s first “no bottle label” Pepsi Cola launched in China.

In April 2022, the first bottle label free version of Pepsi Cola entered the market. The disappearance of the iconic blue bottle label conveyed the brand’s low-carbon proposition of “environmental protection without bottle label”. The new design eliminates plastic labels and ink printing at the bottle body and bottle cap respectively, which can reduce the consumption of materials and energy. The bottle body trademark is presented by embossing, and the product name and shelf life are printed by laser technology, further saving the labor cost required for the separation of the bottle body and the label

In addition to Pepsi Cola and Quaker, which are included in the “advanced brand practice cases”, xiaoshidai noticed that Pepsi food and beverage factory also practices the company’s concept of sustainable development in its production activities.

Last year, PepsiCo China launched the sustainable development platform system management. In just one year, in terms of improving efficiency, the unit consumption of natural gas and electricity of the plant in the first half of this year decreased by more than 5% year on year. In terms of renewable energy use, PepsiCo has achieved 100% renewable power use in Deyang, Wuhan and other factories through green power procurement.

As of the first half of this year, the renewable power consumption of PepsiCo’s factories in China reached 40%, and it is expected to reach more than 80% next year; In addition, with the continuous promotion of roof solar energy projects in Foshan and Beijing factories, by the end of 2022, the installed capacity of self built solar power generation in Pepsi China will increase by 200% compared with that in 2021.

Nowadays, sustainable development is the core issue of many brands. However, PepsiCo has given its own answer on how to effectively practice sustainable development in the production process and commercial operation for a long time, and said: “PepsiCo will work with its upstream and downstream partners in the industrial chain to continuously explore a new paradigm of carbon reduction in the whole chain, and continue to make unremitting efforts for the green transformation of Chinese society.”
