Starbucks has certified 6,091 Greener Stores worldwide, almost doubling the number of such premises since March 2023.

This marks a substantial step towards the company’s ambitious target of 10,000 Greener Stores by 2025.

The initiative is part of Starbucks’ strategy to halve its carbon emissions, water usage and landfill waste by 2030.

Starbucks’ Greener Stores initiative now operates across 44 markets, with recent expansions into countries such as Bahrain, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam.

The Hacienda Alsacia Visitor Center café, located on Starbucks’ own coffee farm in Costa Rica, is also part of the global network.

Since October 2022, all new Starbucks outlets in Latin America and the Caribbean have complied with the Greener Stores framework.

Starbucks chief sustainability officer Michael Kobori said: “Our big vision for the future is for every Starbucks store around the world to be more sustainable. That’s why I’m excited to see the continued growth of Greener Stores globally, driven by the passion of our partners.

“Starbucks’ environmental promise comes to life through our baristas’ daily actions which help define a Greener Store, our innovative shift toward reusable cups and our partnership with coffee farmers on sustainable growing practices — it’s all part of our commitment to give more than we take from the planet.”

The company has also announced the certification of its four Greener Stores in the provinces of Alajuela and San José, Costa Rica, which are operated in partnership with Premium Restaurants of America.
