PepsiCo also mentioned as one of the laggards in achieving zero-net deforestation in a CRR article as it was not on track to achieve the goal.
In 2020, PepsiCo updated its policy on sustainable palm oil. The updated policy addresses the entire supply chain, meaning that the commitment is not applied only for the direct suppliers. In addition to that, the latest policy also set the cut-off date for forest conversion policy on December 31, 2015. It is said that during supplier engagement, direct suppliers are requested to maintain a moratorium on forest and peatland following the cutoff date.
