Starbucks Makes Green Power Purchase Commitment

April 2005 - Starbucks Coffee Company announced that it has committed to purchase wind energy certificates sufficient to match 5% of the electricity used to power its Company-operated stores in North America. The purchase is part of a multi-faceted environmental sustainability strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with the company's business activities. According to the company, the purchase is equivalent to the output of 11 large wind turbines. Starbucks also recently joined the Green Power Market Development Group, a collaboration of 13 leading corporations and the World Resources Institute dedicated to building corporate markets for green power.
