Starbucks announced 13 goals, to be achieved by 2015, as part of its Shared Planet(TM) programme.

 The company
stated that, by 2015, 100% of its coffee will be responsibly grown
and ethically traded. Currently Starbucks acquires 65% of its coffee
through ethical sourcing practices.

Additionally, 100% of Starbucks cups
will be reusable or recyclable. Also, the company will reduce its
environmental footprint through energy and water conservation,
recycling and green construction.
