I am writing in recognition of your work to support “Dreamers”, including those young men and women who are part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They represent the values of hard work, patriotism and hope that define America. At Starbucks, we are proud to call them our partners.
We are committed to working with and buying from farmers and suppliers who share our commitment to humane practices throughout an animal’s lifecycle.
As we all try to find some sort of normalcy in our day-to-day lives amidst these tragedies, I can only hope that, as partners, we continue take care of one another and remain in pursuit of greater unity and humanity.
Amid the inevitable uncertainty, our own goals remain clear: Today, Starbucks leadership, together with our UK and EMEA leadership team, want to assure all Starbucks partners that we are completely committed to the UK market.
Starbucks has a strong legacy of progressive and responsible employment. We also know many of our partners are balancing outside obligations and interests. Scheduling must take an individual approach, allowing for both the consistency and flexibility that are important to each of them.
Starbucks is aware the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) updated classifications to coffee. To evaluate any research on the health benefits or risks of coffee consumption, we work closely with the National Coffee Association (NCA).
At Starbucks, our Mission and Values are at the heart of everything we do. We treat each other with respect and dignity, and we embrace diversity and inclusion in order to create a place where each of us can be ourselves. Discrimination of any kind has no place in our company.
Embarking on a multi-year effort to strengthen our democracy, Starbucks is making a digital tool from Turbovote accessible to all partners in the U.S. This tool makes registering to vote fast and secure from computers and mobile devices. Through Turbovote, anyone who is eligible to vote in the U.S. can register to vote and sign up for important reminders to stay engaged in local and national elections throughout the year.
