CHALLENGE

Over twelve years into its flagship sustainability approach, Performance with Purpose, PepsiCo felt it needed to reach beyond a niche “in-the-know” audience and reconnect with the mainstream.  The global food and drinks giant wanted a more vibrant, more engaging, more accessible and less technical report – without sacrificing rigor or data.

PepsiCo makes great-tasting, feel-good food and drinks.  We thought its sustainability communications should reflect that.

OUR RESPONSE

By combining real-world photography with hand-drawn illustrations, PepsiCo’s 2017 Sustainability Report came to life.  Designed and formatted for digital first, the report caters to ‘paddlers’ who browse at a shallow but broad level, ‘swimmers’ who consume more in-depth, and ‘divers’ who need detailed information on narrow topics. We slashed the page count by 50% and introduced engaging infographics while still catering for the ESG experts with standalone downloads including a data table and GRI Index.
