Keurig Dr Pepper aims to be net water positive, or replenish more water than it uses, by 2050. The company set the new target, made on World Water Day, as part of its “Drink Well. Do Good.” corporate responsibility commitment. 

The beverage giant also plans to test its first fully recyclable and compostable paper bottle later this year in the U.S., in partnership with German packaging manufacturer Papacks. The bottle, which will be tested with different drinks from water to juice to soda, will be 100% plastic-free and allow for curbside recycling, according to a company blog post.

CPGs like Keurig Dr Pepper have been continuing to work on improving their sustainability profile through commitments like water reduction goals and recyclable packaging, to offset the significant environmental footprint of food and beverage manufacturing.
