Ethics and Compliance

Starbucks EthicsStarbucks reputation for integrity flows from our steadfast commitment to our Core Values and Our Starbucks Mission, which require compliance with the law, as well as ethical conduct. Starbucks believes that conducting business ethically and striving to do the right thing are vital to the success of the company.

Business Ethics and Compliance is a program that supports our Mission and helps protect our culture and our reputation by providing resources, including the Standards of Business Conduct, that help partners make ethical decisions at work.

Starbucks depends on its partners to ensure that our Mission is upheld in every facet of our business. For this reason, the company highly values the views of our partners, and partners are encouraged to report all types of issues and concerns to their manager or Partner Resources representative.

The Standards of Business Conduct are a brief statement of some of the company’s expectations of how we are all to conduct Starbucks business, consistent with our Mission and core values.
