Environmental activities

For nearly a decade, the Frito-Lay Beloit facility has had numerous resource and energy conservation initiatives in place, and it continues to reduce its natural gas, electricity and water consumption. The plant has achieved significant reduction milestones in the past five years including, decreasing natural gas usage by 27%, electricity use by 20%, and water consumption by 50%.

Frito-Lay North America has developed an Environmental Management System that is implemented nationwide and has been the foundation of Frito-Lay Beloit's superior environmental performance over the last few years. Frito-Lay Beloit's participation in the Green Tier Program will further validate this important aspect of the company’s culture.

The successful growth of Frito-Lay Beloit's conservation efforts is directly attributed to its associates' dedication to achieving new levels of environmental performance.
