Planet Positive Future

Earlier this month, Starbucks launched oat milk across the US following a ‘successful’ trial. 

The non-dairy milk, which was tested in 1,300 outlets at the beginning of the year in several states, will be available in all US stores by Spring 2021.

The move is part of the company’s Pathway to a Planet Positive Future initiative, which seeks to slash carbon emissions, water, and waste by 50 percent in the next decade. 

“Our Planet Positive initiatives have a central role in our long-term business strategy, and directly address what our customers are asking for,” said Kevin Johnson, Starbucks chief executive officer. 

“We are moving toward a more circular economy, and we are doing so in a very intentional, transparent, and accountable way.”
