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.”

Ms Rabadia will be speaking at Energy Live 2016 in London on November 3rd. Book a place so you don’t miss out! Limited free tickets available for energy end users and university students.
