Starbucks joined the new Transform to Net Zero initiative as a founding member.
Expanding on their history in sustainability and progress in building a more sustainable future, Starbucks announced this January a multi-decade aspiration to be a resource-positive company, giving more than it takes from the planet.
“Starbucks aspires to be a resource-positive company by building on our long history in sustainability,” said Kevin Johnson, Starbucks president and chief executive officer.
The announcement included science-based preliminary target reductions of carbon, water and waste by 2030.
Today, as a continuation of the company’s passion and commitment to a more sustainable future, Starbucks joined the new Transform to Net Zero initiative as a founding member.
Comprised of nine founding members, the Initiative’s objective is to accelerate the transition to a net zero global economy no later than 2050.
“Joining Transform to Net Zero aligned with our aspiration for a more sustainable future. Partnering with other like-minded companies, we will open-source best practices, advocate for positive government policies, and support a just transition. We believe in driving real change and encourage other organizations to join us in this critical effort for humanity,” added Johnson.
