Building Greener Stores

LEED Store

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.

  1. LEED® Certified Stores

    We’re creating more eco-conscious stores on a global scale from the design stage right through to construction and operations.

  2. Energy Conservation & Renewable Energy
    Conserving Energy and Renewable Energy

    We are committed to both reducing our energy use and supporting new, renewable solutions.

  3. Water Conservation

    Water is essential for our beverages, and for life. To conserve this vital resource, we are actively working to reduce the amount we use in our stores.

  4. Store Design
    Store Design - Amsterdam Bank Store

    Our designs reflect the character of a store's surrounding neighborhood and help reduce environmental impacts. See highlights of our stores from around the world.
