What is the role and responsibility of a for-profit, public company?

We have always believed Starbucks can – and should – have a positive impact on the communities we serve. One person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.

As we have grown to now more than 25,000 stores in over 75 countries, so too has our commitment to create global social impact.

So it is our vision that together we will elevate our partners, customers, suppliers and neighbors to create positive change. To be innovators, leaders and contributors to an inclusive society and a healthy environment so that Starbucks and everyone we touch can endure and thrive.
