Being a Responsible Company

We’ve always believed that businesses can – and should – have a positive impact on the communities they serve.

So ever since we opened our first store in 1971, we’ve dedicated ourselves to earning the trust and respect of our customers, partners (employees) and neighbours. How? By being responsible and doing things that are good for the planet and each other.

Starbucks is committed to helping communities thrive everywhere we do business. We strive to support connections in communities around the world so that we can make a positive, relevant and enduring impact. Using Our Scale for Good, Local Relevance/Global Reach, Working with Others, Innovation.
