As of this writing in May of 2021, you can’t get vegan Dunkin Donuts in the US yet; they’ve just launched quite the selection in Belgium, where they’re being test-marketed. Hopefully, this means that we’ll be seeing them soon here in the US!
About Dunkin Donuts
Dunkin Donuts was founded by Bill Rosenberg in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1950. Five years later the business began franchising, and the rest is history!
The company is headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts.
Sustainability at Dunkin Donuts
I was pleasantly surprised to find an entire page on the Dunk Donuts website dedicated to sustainability. This is a testament to how companies like Dunkin understand that we, their customers, are concerned about this as well.
They have quite a bit to say about ways they’re working to implement sustainability practices. While not perfect, I do think that they are making some good strides, including offering Rainforest Alliance certified coffee in their US stores and in select international ones.
One concern is that they still use palm oil, albeit from sustainable palm oil sourcing. Their site states that they are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and are a founding member of the North American Sustainable Palm Oil Network (NASPON).
On the plus side, the company eliminated all polystyrene foam cups in 2020; this action resulted in the removal of an estimated 1 billion cups from the waste stream.
They are also improving their buildings to ensure they feature modern design concepts and innovative technologies engineered to meet DD Green achievement specifications. These facilities are at least 25% more energy efficient than their older restaurant designs.
