The Sunny Delight Beverages Co., Cincinnati, released its 2009 Sustainability Report that outlines its environmental goals using Global Reporting Initiative third generation guidelines.

By 2011, the company plans to reduce per-unit non-product related water usage by 25 percent, reduce per-unit energy usage by 25 percent and reduce per-unit carbon footprint by 25 percent versus 2007 levels. In the report, the company also outlined a goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2013.

"We have made tremendous progress by further reducing the plastic in our bottles, the calories in our products, the water and energy used by our plants, and the fuel needed to produce and transport our products,” said Billy Cyr, Sunny Delight’s president and chief executive officer, in a statement. “These results have simultaneously strengthened our company and reduced the impact we have on the environment."

Sunny Delight also highlighted goals to improve the nutritional value of its product portfolio, reduce packaging materials and improve shipping efficiency to reduce its carbon footprint.
