We share your commitment to the environment.
Our comprehensive approach to reducing our environmental impact means looking at all aspects of our business, how they intersect and how we can integrate new solutions to create meaningful and sustained change. By building more energy-efficient stores and facilities, conserving the energy and water we use, and scaling front-of-store recycling for customers, we are pushing ourselves to reduce the environmental footprint of our business operations.
- 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.
