Starbucks certifies 3500 Greener stores globally

The coffee giant Starbucks has currently 3,508 stores under its Greener Store framework and is expanding more, as it aims to certify 10,000 Greener Stores across the world by 2025.

Starbucks has brought the programme to 20 markets according to a statement on Tuesday. The regions currently hosting the new programme include Asia pacific, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

By the end of 2023 and forward, all stores built in Latin America and the Caribbean will be built under the Greener Stores framework.

The Greener Stores framework was co-developed with the World Wildlife Fund and includes 25 performance-based standards in environmental impact areas.

In the Greener Stores employees will use the Starbucks Waste and Recycling App, which will guide them on how to recycle, compost, and donate perishable foods.

The Starbucks chief sustainability officer, Michael Kobori, said “with a company of Starbucks scale–any one action, no matter how small, has the potential for massive impact.”

“I’m so proud to see our Greener Stores framework continue to scale for good globally. The programme we have created will continue to move us closer towards our resource positive goals,” he added.
