PepsiCo has counterbalanced its entire CO2 footprint and fully compensated for it since 2020. The total carbon footprint included its entire business operations' scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for a total of 505,002 metric tonnes of CO abated and 3 million trees planted in Kenya.
With ClimatePositive, PepsiCo was able to calculate its annual CO emissions and support forest and reforestation projects in South America. Trees and forests play a special role in climate protection and, alongside oceans, are one of the largest natural CO2 sinks. Trees clean the air we breathe, regulate precipitation and the water cycle, cool the earth and are cheap and relatively easy to multiply CO reservoirs. Forests provide the habitat for more than 80% of the Earth’s biological diversity.
