How big is the carbon footprint of Starbucks?



  1. 0 Votes

    Starbucks calculated its domestic carbon footprint in 2003. At that time it was emitting 295,000 tons of carbon into the air. Considering that in 2003 there were about 3,700 stores in the country, whereas today there are over 6,000, no doubt that footprint is much larger. Additionally, in 2003 Starbucks decided to omit the 81,000 tons of CO2 emissions due to transport of coffee materials and solid waste disposal. A positive note is that this footprint is still relatively small compared to nearly 1000 other companies. It also does not include the footprint created by those of us who drive there every day!
