Celebrating 10 Years of Global Responsibility Reporting

Throughout our history, Starbucks has been actively involved in our local neighborhoods and our coffee-growing communities, and exploring ways to minimize the environmental impact of our stores.

Ten years ago, we joined a small but growing number of companies openly assessing their corporate citizenship efforts by publishing our first annual report on these areas. With this simple step, we acknowledged our responsibility to lead by example and put into place measures to ensure transparency and accountability for our progress and performance on community and environmental impacts of our business.

Each year since then, the report has taken a look back at what has been accomplished and set ambitious goals for the future. Just as our scale has grown, so has our responsibility – and our ability to use our scale for good.

Now, a decade later, we’ve launched our 10th annual Global Responsibility Report. Although we are proud of how far we have come, we know there is still a long way to go. We welcome your input and ideas on the journey.

    Shame on you for linking lady gaga with Starbucks. I am so disapointed in this after seeing her perform on American Idol in her underwear! This person is not a good example to the young people in our country, period.

    STOP PRETENDING TO SELL REAL ESPRESSO! IT'S THE WORST ON THE PLANET. YOUR BARISTAS NEED RETRAINING.

    I really enjoy your via ready brew coffee, however, I hate the packaging that you use for Costco. Hard to open. Too much packaging. There has to be a better way.
