PepsiCo will employ a diversified portfolio of solutions, including Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) that will support the development of new projects such as solar and wind farms around the world

PepsiCo Inc. has announced a new target to source 100{429fc2506e610357e12b2a5665db82631200a2e00b3a1d8839077d76f18e2e8b} renewable electricity across all of its company-owned and controlled operations globally by 2030 and across its entire franchise and third-party operations by 2040.

With PepsiCo’s scale, the transition has the potential to reduce approximately 2.5 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2040, the equivalent of taking more than half a million cars off the road for a full year. This announcement builds upon the company’s global efforts to increase its use of renewable energy sources and its transition to renewable electricity in the US, its largest market, announced earlier this year.

Investors are concerned another stock market crash is coming. The second wave of coronavirus infections is possibly on the way, and increased lockdown measures are being considered. This would very likely hurt the markets, and they’re getting jittery. The FTSE 100 and other major indexes have declined today, adding to the drops seen last week. 

But what should an investor do if worried about those fears of a bear market becoming a reality? In times like these, I like to take advice from investors who’ve seen it all before and have long track records of success.

Stock markets crash

Renowned investor Peter Lynch has accepted that dealing with bear markets is part and parcel of investing, and so should we. At some point, every investor will see the value of their portfolios dip. So, what’s an investor to do about this?

“You get recessions, you have stock market declines. If

A British man who was part of a hacking collective called The Dark Overlord was sentenced Monday to five years in prison for helping the group steal information from several companies in the U.S., including Missouri, Illinois and Georgia.

Nathan Francis Wyatt, 39, was sentenced after he pleaded guilty in federal court in St. Louis to conspiring to commit aggravated identity theft and computer fraud. He was also ordered to pay about $1.5 million in restitution.

Federal prosecutors said The Dark Overlord stole medical records, client files and personal information from the companies, then demanded between $75,000 and $300,000 worth of Bitcoin to return the information. None of the companies paid the ransom but the conspiracy did cost them because of the intrusion and release of data, federal prosecutor Laura Kathleen Bernstein said.

Wyatt set up a phone account and accounts on Twitter and PayPal that were used to communicate … Read more

I think it’s relatively straightforward to build a passive income stream with just a small daily investment. Today, I’m going to explain how I plan to use this approach to cover some of my monthly spending needs. 

Building a passive income

The first step on a passive income journey is to build a savings pot. The size of savings required depends on your passive income target. Some investors will want to earn a lot of money every month. Others may have a more moderate target.

I’m targeting a monthly income stream of £500. This will cover the majority of my housing costs, which should help me save more in future. 

With a monthly target of £500, or £6,000 a year, I reckon a savings pot of at least £150,000 is needed to achieve this target.

My figures tell me it may be possible to hit this target with just £10 … Read more
