12 Inadequate Infrastructure System Poor Catchment Governance Ineffective Water Management Water Over- Allocation Water Supply Unreliable Water Quality Deterioration Flood Damage Ecosystem Degradation Efficient Water Use Effluent Management/ Wastewater Reclamation/Reuse Community Level Access to Safe Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Storm Water Management and Flood Control Infrastructure Finance, Development, Operation, or Maintenance Sustainable Agriculture Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Ecosystem/Source Water Protection/Restoration Monitoring and Knowledge Sharing Engaging in Participatory Platforms Public Awareness and Education Improved Water Governance and Policy Development Connecting Actions to Underlying Causes

14 14 Agriculture represents 70% of global water withdrawal; we are engaged in water conservation measures across our business Traditional Flood Irrigation Pivot Irrigation Drip Irrigation The potential “prize” is a water savings of nearly 0.25 billion liters/year Direct Seeding ( DSR) Traditional In 2009, PepsiCo applied DSR & saved Over 5.5 Billion liters water China Company Farms India Community Farms 30% Water 70% GHG 30-50% Up to 70%

15 15 Looking ahead, protection and restoration of watersheds where we do business is the umbrella under which much of our long-term, water-related risk will be mitigated in our direct operations, supply chain, and community. Positive Water Balance employs a simple “credit/debit” model to water use and replenishment. The performance of the India business was assured externally by Deloitte in 2009 and …and we are expanding beyond direct operations to watershed interventions
