Starbucks to work with farmers to help reduce emissions

Due to dairy emissions accounting for 22% of Starbucks’ global carbon emissions, the coffee chain has partnered with farmer owned dairy co-operative Arla Foods to work on a three-year pilot to create a sustainable sourcing blueprint.

The scheme will involve Starbucks working directly with 14 Arla farmers in the UK to identify innovative new farming practices and  methods to significantly reduce the emissions associated with dairy production. The work will focus on three key areas of environmental stewardship, animal health and welfare.

The sourcing blueprint will be underscored by Arla’s sustainability research and development work, and independently validated by a third party.

At the end of the three-year pilot, Starbucks hopes to scale the blueprint to support Starbucks dairy suppliers across Europe, Middle East and Africa

Alex Rayner, general manager at Starbucks UK, said: “This partnership with Arla and the dairy farming community underpins our commitment to produce high quality and responsibly sourced products.
