Climate Change Card

22 Jan: Best Buy named to top tier of companies fighting climate change

Best Buy’s environmental report card is out – and we’re at the top of the class when it comes to tackling climate change.

It’s a big deal for us because CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) is the global authority on environmental issues, including climate change.

This is the third time CDP has recognized Best Buy as an environmental leader on the Climate A List. The distinction puts Best Buy among the top 5 percent of companies participating in CDP’s climate change program.
