Starbucks last estimated its carbon footprint in 2003, at which time it was calculated at 295,000 tons of carbon emitted into the atmosphere. Starbucks figures that 81% of this figure is electricity consumption and 18% is coffee roasting and natural gas consumption. This footprint also leaves out the estimated 81,000 tons of carbon emitted through transportation and waste disposal, as well as any calculations for its international stores (1500 and growing). Today’s footprint calculation would be much higher, as Starbucks has nearly doubled the number of its stores since 2003. The truly scary thing is that Starbucks is one of the more eco-friendly companies, truly making an effort to reduce its footprint.
