Carbon-neutral coffee

Carbon-neutral coffee

Coffee chain Starbucks has announced plans to deliver carbon-neutral coffee and boost water stewardship across parts of its coffee supply chains to become ‘resource positive’ by 2030. It hopes to decrease its Scope 3 emissions by equipping farmers with precision agronomy tools that help prevent the over-use of water, fertilizer and pesticides. Starbucks will also finance and support forest conservation and restoration projects in at-risk landscapes across its value chain. It believes this will enable it to certify the ‘green coffee’ portion of its value chain as carbon neutral this decade. But the company isn’t just focussing on the environment, Starbucks is also working to make its cafes more accessible for blind and low-vision customers and will be rolling out new large-print and Braille menus in the US and Canada this year.
