In the United Kingdom from January 2022, Arla and Starbucks will develop and pilot a new sustainable dairy sourcing blueprint for Starbucks, designed to help reduce the coffee chains carbon emissions from dairy. At the end of the three-year pilot, Starbucks hopes to scale the blueprint to support Starbucks dairy suppliers across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The pilot will work with 14 of Arla’s UK farmer owners, Arla and an independent advisor appointed by Starbucks. Starbucks will also be working with scientists from The Nature Conservancy, a global, and environmental stewardship non-profit who will support the partnership. Dairy emissions account for 22 percent of Starbucks global carbon emissions. Starbucks target is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent globally and Arla’s target is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent per kilogram of milk by 2030.
