The Stockholm Industry Water Award jury recognised PepsiCo's efforts to
increase water efficiency.

The company conserved nearly 16 billion litres of water in 2011, from a 2006
baseline, through the application of water saving equipment and technologies,
creative recycling and re-use, and by deploying a water management system
throughout its manufacturing facilities.

  *PepsiCo has set and achieved a high standard for its own operations, and
    has demonstrated that responsible water use makes good business sense, the
    jury said.

PepsiCo's water commitment has not stopped at the factory walls. By assisting
farmers in growing more water efficient crops, implementing better
agricultural practices and irrigation techniques, and by supporting watershed
management initiatives, PepsiCo has saved water all along its agricultural
supply chain. In 2009, PepsiCo was among the first large companies in the
world to recognise and to formally adopt the human right to water.The company
has established numerous public-private partnerships and collaborations, which
have increased access to safe water and sanitation services around the globe.

  *PepsiCo is incredibly proud to win this prestigious award. As a global
    food and beverage company, we take a comprehensive approach to water
    stewardship throughout our supply chain and operations. We are proud to
    work with a variety of exceptional partners that help us reach aggressive
    water stewardship goals, said Rich Delaney, Senior Vice President of
    Operations for PepsiCo.

PepsiCo will receive the Stockholm Industry Water Award on August 28 at a
ceremony during the World Water Week in Stockholm.
