The target is part of Starbucks’ long-term goal of becoming “resource positive.”
Starbucks said Wednesday that it plans to make its green coffee carbon neutral by 2030.
Green coffee refers to the first steps of the coffee supply chain, as beans are grown, harvested and transported to ports.
The coffee giant is also aiming to halve water usage in green coffee processing by 2030.
Last year, the company set a goal of becoming “resource positive” by storing more carbon than it emits, eliminating waste, and providing more clean freshwater than it uses.
Other objectives include cutting carbon emissions in half in direct operations and its supply chain, conserving or replenishing half of the water taken for coffee production or operators and halving the waste sent to landfills by cafes and manufacturing.
