The war between Coke and Pepsi is not relegated to the consumer marketplace: In terms of environmental impact and disclosure, Coke takes the top spot, although both are relatively strong among other competitors in the food and beverage category.
To compile the list of the greenest big food and beverage companies in America, we referred to the Newsweek Green Rankings and filtered by sector. The overall ranking was produced in conjunction with research partners Trucost and Sustainalytics, using a methodology created in consultation with an advisory panel of corporate sustainability experts.
The Green Rankings were created in 2009 with ASAP Media, a New York City media development firm founded by editors Peter W. Bernstein (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Annalyn Swan (email@example.com). It specializes in creating magazine, book, and online content.
