PepsiCo launches 2025 sustainability agenda to meet changing consumer needs

PepsiCo announced an ambitious global sustainability agenda designed to foster continued business growth in a way that responds to changing consumer and societal needs. The company's efforts, which focus on creating a healthier relationship between people and food, include specific 2025 goals to continue transforming PepsiCo's food and beverage product portfolio, contribute to a more sustainable global food system and help make local communities more prosperous. The company has set the following goals for 2025: At least two-thirds of its global beverage portfolio volume will have 100 calories or fewer from added sugars per 12-oz serving. At least three-quarters of its global foods portfolio volume will not exceed 1.1 grams of saturated fat per 100 calories. At least three-quarters of its global foods portfolio volume will not exceed 1.3 milligrams of sodium per calorie. The rate of sales growth of what the company refers to as Everyday Nutrition products will outpace the rate of sales growth in the balance of PepsiCo's portfolio. Everyday Nutrition products include those that deliver whole grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy, protein and hydration. It will provide access to at least three billion servings of nutritious foods and beverages to underserved communities and consumers. The company also reaffirms its commitment to deliver on its Global Labeling and Responsible Advertising to Children Policies. PepsiCo has and will continue to support industry actions in these areas. The company supports the Paris Climate Agreement and is focused on reducing its environmental impact while growing its business. It will continue improving the efficiency of its manufacturing and distribution operations while also broadly extending its environmental stewardship efforts across its global value chain. As part of its focus on protecting the planet, PepsiCo will work to achieve positive water impact; significantly lower its carbon emissions, with significant efforts to reduce emissions related to agriculture and packaging; promote sustainable sourcing of crops; and reduce waste. Specifically, PepsiCo plans to: Improve the water-use efficiency of its direct agricultural supply chain by 15% in high-water-risk sourcing areas by 2025. These savings equate to the same approximate volume of water used in PepsiCo manufacturing operations. Improve the water use efficiency of its direct manufacturing operations by 25% by 2025. This is in addition to the 25% improvement in water-use efficiency the company has achieved since 2006 and will include a focus on high-water-risk areas. Building on its support for the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human rights, PepsiCo is significantly broadening its focus on respecting human rights across the company's supply chain. In addition, the company is pursuing new initiatives to promote diversity in its global workforce, support the advancement of women, and spur social and economic development in communities around the world. Specifically, PepsiCo plans to: Expand its Sustainable Farming Initiative to approximately 7 million acres by 2025, covering crops that collectively comprise approximately three-quarters of its agricultural-based spend. PepsiCo's SFI is focused on promoting environmentally responsible agricultural practices, improving crop yields and growers' livelihoods, and respecting human rights. Invest $100 million in partnership with the PepsiCo Foundation to support initiatives to benefit 12.5 million women and girls around the world by 2025.

Coca-Cola downgraded following Pepsi results at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel analyst Mark Swartzberg downgraded Coca-Cola (KO) to Hold from Buy. The analyst downgraded the stock after Pepsi (PEP) reported better than expected Q3 results. The analyst says that Coca-Cola's and Pepsi's organic EPS growth appears to be similar, but he believes that Pepsi is less vulnerable to foreign exchange fluctuations. Additionally, he believes that Coca Cola European Bottlers (CCE) is a better investment than Coca-Cola because of the large amount of revenue synergies which that Coca Cola European Bottlers has identified.
