PepsiCo Inc. said on June 26 that it opened a new

"green" drink plant in China

and plans to build five more plants in China over the next two years as

part of a $1 billion investment in the world's most populous country.

The plant is in the western city of Chongqing and meets the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED standards, which require the

use of energy and water-saving systems.

Over the next two years, the world's

second-biggest soft drink maker after Coca-Cola Co said it expects to open new

drink manufacturing plants in Kunming, Zhengzhou, Quanzhou, Lanzhou,

and Nanchang.

The news comes just days after Coke

said it opened two new bottling plants in China.
