Starbucks aims to cut water usage in the coffee supply by 2030Starbucks Corp. said Monday that it will halve water usage in its supply chain by 2030 by taking a variety of steps, including the purchase of 600 "eco-mills" that have reduced water use by 80% in places like Guatemala and Mexico where they have been installed; and improvements to water processing machinery and technology that it already owns. By 2030, the chain also aims to reach its target for carbon-neutral green coffee by 2030. Starbucks will equip farmers with tools that will lessen the use of fertilizer; promote varietals that are climate-resistant and rust-resistant, which will allow for more coffee grown on the same amount of land; and promote and restore forests impacted by coffee farming, starting in Peru and Colombia. Starbucks stock has gained 85.9% over the past year, outpacing the S&P 500 index which is up 70.6% over the period.
