July 27, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Global coffee shop chain Starbucks aspires to be resource positive, giving more than it takes from the planet. To achieve this goal, Starbucks has joined the new ‘Transform to Net Zero’ initiative as a founding member, alongside the likes of Nike.

The Transform to Net Zero will focus on enabling the required business transformation to achieve net-zero emissions no later than 2050, in addition to driving broader change with a focus on policy, innovation and finance.

“Starbucks aspires to be resource-positive…by building on our long history in sustainability,” said president and CEO, Kevin Johnson. “Joining Transform to Net Zero is 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 organisations to join us in this critical effort for humanity.”
