Starbucks Receives Green Energy Accolades from the EPA
We’re proud to announce that Starbucks has come in at #7 on the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Top 50, a list ranking the top renewable energy purchasing organizations in the United States. Last year, we purchased Green-e® certified renewable energy credits equal to more than 421 million kilowatt-hours of green energy – enough electricity to power more than 50% of our company-owned stores in the U.S., or over 33,000 US homes for a year. 100% of that energy came from wind power. We’re honored by this recognition, but while our commitment to supporting green energy is unwavering, our primary goal is to reduce the energy and water used to operate our stores. Learn more here.
