We share your commitment to the environment.
We’re taking action because we believe it’s important to help care for our planet, and we’ll encourage and work with others to do the same. As a company that relies on an agricultural product with the potential to be impacted by changes in climate, Starbucks is committed to reduce its operating costs and increase shareholder value through energy and water efficiency, and believes we should reflect the values of our customers and our partners, we believe it simply makes good business sense.
- Building Greener Stores
By building environmentally sound stores and facilities, conserving the energy and water we use and purchasing renewable energy credits, we’re pushing ourselves to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations.
- Recycling & Reducing Waste
We’re working to shrink our environmental footprint and meet the expectations of our customers. Providing recycling in our stores and ensuring the recyclability of our cups are two of our foremost priorities.
- Cups & Materials
Addressing environmental challenges requires us to think beyond our company. We’re constantly looking to innovate and collaborate with like-minded organizations to reduce our cup and packaging waste.
- Climate Change
Since 2004, we’ve been aggressively pursuing strategies to address this problem and help farmers mitigate the impact of climate change on their farms.
How You Can Help
