Partner Profile
Since the day we opened our very first store in 1971, Starbucks has been committed to doing business responsibly and in a manner that earns the trust and respect of our customers and neighbors. Energy use makes up roughly 80 percent of our directly controlled carbon emissions. That makes it our single biggest impact on the climate – and our single biggest opportunity to make significant improvements. We are working to conserve these resources by analyzing our performance and implementing new solutions to increase efficiency. We’re also helping to transform the energy landscape by supporting the development of the green power market. We are purchasing renewable energy certificates (RECs) equivalent to nearly 70 percent of our stores' electricity use globally, and have committed to cover 100 percent of their use by 2015.
