After introducing two Rainforest Alliance Certified coffees in six months, 7-Eleven Inc. is making its biggest product commitment to sustainability with the switch to a new Rainforest Alliance Certified single-origin Colombian coffee.
The “planet pillar” of 7-Eleven’s CSR goals included reducing its energy footprint in stores by 20 percent by 2025. Earlier this year, 7-Eleven signed an agreement with TXU Energy to purchase 100 percent Texas wind energy for 425 Texas stores. The 96-month wind energy agreement starts June 1, 2018. It is expected to reduce 7-Eleven’s carbon footprint by 6.7% while providing significant operating expense savings. The energy to power competitive market 7-Eleven stores will be provided by Texas wind farms.
