Celebrating 10 Years of Global Responsibility

Throughout our history, Starbucks has been actively involved in our local neighborhoods and our coffee-growing communities, and exploring ways to minimize the environmental impact of our stores.

Ten years ago, we joined a small but growing number of companies openly assessing their corporate citizenship efforts by publishing our first annual report on these areas. With this simple step, we acknowledged our responsibility to lead by example and put into place measures to ensure transparency and accountability for our progress and performance on community and environmental impacts of our business.

Each year since then, the report has taken a look back at what has been accomplished and set ambitious goals for the future. Just as our scale has grown, so has our responsibility – and our ability to use our scale for good.

Now, a decade later, we’ve launched our 10th annual Global Responsibility Report. Although we are proud of how far we have come, we know there is still a long way to go. We welcome your input and ideas on the journey.
