Starbucks goes green with GE LEDs

20 November 2009 12.00 GMT

(USA) - As part of a massive project to help reduce its global environmental footprint, International coffee chain Starbucks has embarked on a programme of converting to GE’s LED lighting systems at more than 8,000 stores.

Starbucks has completed installation in more than 1,000 U.S. locations and will expand the program to international markets in March 2010. The switch is part of Starbucks’ goal to achieve a 25 percent reduction in energy use by the end of 2010.

In addition to its work with GE, Starbucks announced that it has entered into the construction phase of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED pilot program, which is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Over the next six months, Starbucks will build or renovate a minimum of 10 pilot stores in six different regions around the world. The goal is to achieve LEED certification for all new company-owned stores worldwide beginning in late 2010.
