Starbucks Makes its Stores Sustainable

Starbucks is working to make all new stores LEED-certified beginning in late 2010.


| December 2009 Web


Starbucks plans to reduce its environmental impact by achieving the U.S. Green Building Council ’s LEED standards on all of its new company-owned stores worldwide beginning in late 2010. Approximately 60 percent of Starbucks stores in the U.S. are company-owned and 40 percent internationally.

• The new store design will incorporate these sustainable elements:

• Low-energy lighting systems

• Dual-flush toilets and low-use water faucets

• Drought-resistant native landscaping
