Learning About Starbucks’ Sustainability Practices
By: Katherine Chamberlain
Social Capital Council Members take a LEED Tour and Coffee Tasting with Starbucks
Starbucks is creating more eco-conscious stores on a global scale from the design stage right through to construction and operations. Combined with their commitment to ethical sourcing, Starbucks is a global leader in sustainability.
Thank you Paul Morack for giving Social Capital Council Members an inside look at Starbucks’ sustainability practices at their new LEED® certified store in One Oxford Centre. We had a great time exploring the store’s sustainable building standards and learning more about Starbucks’ responsibly grown and ethically traded coffee. Including being shown how to taste the cocoa notes in a variety of bean.
