  • Starbucks Corp aims to add more plant-based food and drinks to its menu, make its packaging reusable and invest in better waste-management, CEO Kevin Johnson said on Tuesday, as part of the company’s latest plan to become more environmentally friendly.
  • The plant-based meat category is expected to be worth $140 billion in the next decade.
  • For now, the world’s largest coffee chain has laid out targets for 2030 including halving landfill waste from stores, and carbon emissions from its direct operations and supply chain.
