Starbucks Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Starbucks Corporation.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Starbucks Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 21.08

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Starbucks Corporation's overall score of 21.08 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 28th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Starbucks Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Starbucks Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.67/100

Starbucks Corporation's environmental score of 3.67 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Starbucks Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Starbucks Corporation's social score

Social score: 13.57/100

Starbucks Corporation's social score of 13.57 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Starbucks Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Starbucks Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 6.84/100

Starbucks Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Starbucks Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Starbucks Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Starbucks Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Starbucks Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Starbucks Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 66.24% of net profits

Recently Starbucks Corporation has paid out, on average, around 66.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Starbucks Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Starbucks Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.08 per share.

Starbucks Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Starbucks Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Starbucks Corporation's shares ever split?

Starbucks Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 April 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Starbucks Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Starbucks Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Starbucks Corporation's share price.

Starbucks Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Starbucks Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $68.8621 up to $114.9078. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SBUX.US volatility(beta: 0.94)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Starbucks Corporation's is 0.9448. This would suggest that Starbucks Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
