PepsiCo Makes Nation's Largest RECs Purchase

April 2007 - PepsiCo, one of the world's largest food and beverage companies, announced that it will purchase enough Green-e certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match the purchased electricity used by all PepsiCo U.S.-based manufacturing facilities, headquarters, distribution centers and regional offices. The three-year purchase totals more than one billion kWh annually, making PepsiCo the nation's largest corporate purchaser of RECs, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership. The RECs are being supplied by Sterling Planet, which will seek to source the RECs to model PepsiCo's purchased electricity use geographically.
