Starbucks Fiscal 2023 Global Impact Report

Starbucks has always been a different kind of company. We’re on a journey to unleash the limitless possibilities of human connection. For more than 20 years, we have reviewed our performance with the Starbucks Global Impact Report.

This report provides an overview of our environmental and social impact strategies and annual progress during fiscal year 2023 (FY23). While this report is not an exhaustive summary of our efforts, it helps demonstrate the integration between our business and our promises to our most important stakeholders: partners (employees), the environment, farmers, communities, customers, and shareholders. This report also includes data tables that reflect our progress against our goals. A comprehensive view of our progress and reports since 2001 is available here.
