PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Starbucks' portfolio consists of more than 7,000 buildings and 12 million square feet. Starbucks has improved energy performance by 9% from a 2009 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 25%. Energy savings have been achieved through LED lighting retrofits, energy management systems, proactive asset replacement and new store improvements.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Starbucks has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at more than 2600 of its properties. Improvements were counterbalanced by growth associated with incremental equipment driven by its food program and new initiatives.

IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT

Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Starbucks is continually evaluating opportunities to improve energy performance of its properties and equipment.
