At Best Buy, we are proud to be recognized as an environmental leader for our ongoing work to reduce our impact on the planet. 

Best Buy’s approach.

We’re working alongside our customers to reduce our impact on the planet.
From investing in renewable energy to reducing waste in our operations and offering products that help our customers live more sustainably, we are committed to propelling the circular economy forward, a system that aims to reduce waste and preserve resources.
We focus on our highest-impact areas, including the products we sell, in our operations and through the energy we procure.
“At Best Buy, we aim to meaningfully reduce our impact on the environment and help our customers do the same. We make decisions with the future in mind, to strengthen our business, improve people’s lives and promote the health of our communities for years to come.”
