    Willard Hay, SENIOR V.P. at Starbucks, on promoting sustainability in the coffee industry

    The livelihoods of more than 25 million people, most of whom are small-scale farmers in the developing world, depend on the coffee industry. The volatility in the futures market for coffee, however, has meant that the price per pound has frequently fallen below the cost thresholds for many producers, spelling uncertainty, hardship, financial collapse, and the breakup of families in search of work, particularly in Latin America.

    A large coffee purchaser like Starbucks, which currently has nearly 13,000 stores around the world, has a huge opportunity to positively influence lives and economies through ethical business practices. In this opening keynote of the Socially and Environmentally Responsible Supply Chains conference at Stanford's Graduate School of Business, Willard Hay, Starbucks senior vice president, explains how the company embraces a responsible approach to suppliers as a core part of its business through its C.A.F.E. Practices program. >>Click here to listen
