Berjaya Starbucks Coffee Company Sdn. Bhd.

– Being a Responsible Company

At Starbucks we stand for being people positive, planet positive and profit positive, living our Mission and Values while working together as partners to build a different kind of company. This year, we continued our focus on three areas where we know we can have the most impact: leading in sustainability, creating meaningful opportunities, and strengthening our communities.

Expanding on our history in sustainability and progress in reducing the impact of our business on the environment, as of October 2020, all our stores in Malaysia have adopted the use of lightweight strawless lids for iced beverages, and have replaced our single use plastic straws with alternative material straws that is easier to recycle and compost.

From the very beginning, Starbucks has a long legacy of putting our partners (employees) first and creating a culture where everyone is welcomed. In November 2019, we opened our second Starbucks Signing Store in Burmah Road, Penang – the fourth of its kind in the world – which expands from our initial Signing Store in Bangsar Village II to provide employment and development opportunities for the Deaf community.

At Starbucks we take actions to strengthen our communities by listening, supporting, investing and uplifting in meaningful ways. This year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Starbucks Malaysia worked with the local health districts around where our stores operate to donate more than 1,000 cups of coffee to frontliners which include hospital staff, police and also the non-profit organizations working directly with the underprivilege communities.
