PepsiCo To Install Eco-Friendly Coolers In Miami Next Week


PepsiCo is to start installing its first US hydrofluorocarbon-free (HFC-Free) coolers in Miami, the host city of this year’s Super Bowl, from next week.

The 35 new coolers each use less energy than a 100-watt light bulb and are being installed in the US city as part of a pilot project to reduce the carbon footprint of the company’s refrigeration equipment.

Robert Lewis, vice-president of packaging and equipment for PepsiCo, said that the company is “strongly committed” to reducing its carbon emissions.

“Introducing these energy-efficient, HFC-free coolers is the next step in PepsiCo’s strategic sustainability initiative to reduce harmful emissions from all of its refrigeration equipment,” Mr Lewis added.

PepsiCo is taking a number of measures to ensure that it reduces its carbon footprint and tackles the issue of climate change.

The company reduced its absolute distribution footprint by 4.3 per cent in 2007 by, among other measures, using lower friction tyres on its vehicles and employing the use of new journey-planning software.
