Starbucks has expanded its commitment to sourcing 100% of its energy from renewable sources across all its stores in Europe.
The expansion now sees more than 500 company-owned stores in the UK, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands powered by green sources including wind and hydropower.
The announcement comes a year after the coffee chain signed up to the RE100 agreement, a global initiative designed to encourage companies to use 100% renewable power.
Jaz Rabadia MBE, Senior Manager of energy & initiatives at Starbucks Europe said: “We are focused on creating stores that are designed, constructed and operated with sustainability in mind and we understand the importance of contributing to a low carbon economy.
“We are committed to building on the progress already achieved and will continue working on developing long term relationships with renewable energy providers and generators.”
