Dr. Pepper Plans for ‘Green’ Fleet

June 10, 2010

PLANO, TEXAS - Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) is greening its fleet as part of a five-year goal to improve environmental and social performance across the company's operations, according to its first corporate social responsibility (CSR) report.

DPS is addressing environmental sustainability by reducing fuel consumption with logistics software that configures shorter, more efficient delivery routes, and by installing idle shut-down and electronic speed limiters.

Among the company's goals for the next five years are plans to improve energy efficiency in manufacturing operations by 10 percent per gallon of finished product above 2009 levels, increase product shipments per gallon of fuel used by 20 percent, replace 60,000 vending machines and coolers with Energy Star-rated equipment that is approximately 30 percent more energy efficient, reduce water usage and wastewater discharge ratio in manufacturing operations by 10 percent per gallon of finished product, and conserve more than 60 million lbs. of PET plastic through package reengineering and increased use of post-consumer recycled material.

The company is also exploring opportunities in hybrid and alternative fleet vehicles and will begin monitoring fuel efficiency in its vehicle fleet beginning this year, according to the CSR report.
