Starbucks employs over 300,000 employees in its 26,736 stores around the world. In recent years, Starbucks has made significant progress in developing new strategies to reduce energy consumption in both new and existing stores.
All of the coffee giant's new stores across Europe are designed, constructed and operated to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. To date, the company have built more than 1,200 LEED certified stores across 20 countries.
Starbucks are looking to push those figures even further and currently plan to have 10,000 green retail stores around the world by 2025.
In addition to reducing energy usage, Starbucks is increasingly focused on sourcing energy from renewable sources.
