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.
We are working to bring all of our stores to LEED® building standards and ensure that our approach to designing, building, and maintaining our stores is inclusive of a range of environmental goals.
We’re working to shrink our environmental footprint and meet the expectations of our customers by increasing recycling, promoting reusable cups and reducing the waste associated with our cups and other packaging.
By conserving the energy and water we use and purchasing renewable energy credits, we’re pushing ourselves to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations and help ensure access to clean water in coffee-growing communities.
Since 2004, we’ve been pursuing strategies to address this challenge and help farmers mitigate the impact of climate change on their farms.
