Costa Coffee has committed to becoming net zero by 2040.
The hot drinks chain has also made a pledge to halve its carbon emissions by the end of this decade to help it achieve this wider aim.
Its targets have been approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and include powering its coffee roastery with 100% renewable gas and improving farming practices.
Costa revealed that just 5% of its total emissions are direct (scope 1 and 2), with the remaining 95% coming from how its products are grown, transported, prepared and supplied (scope 3).
Sustainability Director, Deb Caldow, said: “We know that reducing our emissions by half per coffee serving and ultimately reaching net zero is going to take a lot of collective effort from all of us at Costa Coffee – from our team members and partners to our suppliers and consumers.
“But we are energised and prepared to work together to make a difference, as we continue to aspire to become the world’s most loved coffee brand and uplift the lives of coffee fans around the world.”
