Six Guiding Principles Starbucks Coffee Company

The '7 Winning Principles' of DowJones post triggered people to send me some other mission statements.
The Starbucks mission statement for example says:
The following six guiding principles will help us measure the appropriateness of our decisions:
  1. Provide a great work environment and treat each other with respect and dignity.
  2. Embrace diversity as an essential component in the way we do business.
  3. Apply the highest standards of excellence to the purchasing, roasting and fresh delivery of our coffee.
  4. Develop enthusiastically satisfied customers all of the time.
  5. Contribute positively to our communities and our environment.
  6. Recognize that profitability is essential to our future success.
