PepsiCo has opened the first ‘green’ plant in the industrial center of Chongqing, China. Meeting the standards of the U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED),  it is the first of six planned plants over the next two years.  The plant uses over 35 water and energy saving designs and utilizes the world’s most advanced technology, including an environmental management system that monitors water and energy use on every production line and every piece of individual equipment in real time. Water is reused for landscaping and cleaning, natural lighting dominates 75% of the interior  and the plant is covered by a green roof, insulating the building and saving energy on cooling and heating.

The facilities are expected to decrease water and energy usage by over 20%, predicting annual savings of 3,100 tons of greenhouse gases, four million kilowatt hours and 100,000 tons of water. It also will serve as an educational center to raise awareness on good environmental practices among students in the local community.

“This plant reflects our deep and long-term commitment to China,” said Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo chairman and chief executive officer. “It is also an important milestone in our green journey, on which we are partnering with the Chinese government, industry and others to continue to promote the health and longevity of our planet.”

Pepsi might just live up to the slogan of the 1980’s ad featuring a dashing Michael Jackson; Pepsi – The Choice of a New Generation.
