21 Jun: Best Buy Releases Latest Sustainability Report; Exceeds Carbon Goal

Today Best Buy released its fiscal year 2017 Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Report. What’s the big news? We set out to reduce our carbon emissions 45 percent by 2020 (over a 2009 baseline) and, at the end of 2016, we reached nearly 47 percent.

We are committed to addressing climate change. But that’s not all.

At Best Buy, we are focusing our efforts to positively impact the world in three areas: our communities, our environment and our people. It’s the work we call Best Buy for Good.

30 Jun: Best Buy Releases 2016 Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Report

It was another banner year for Best Buy’s sustainability work. Today we released our 2016 Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Report, in which we detail the many ways we positively impacted our communities. It’s where we explain our key social and environmental issues, the progress we’ve made during the year and our goals for the future.

Here are a few highlights:

Climate change was front and center. We attended the United Nations global climate negotiations (COP21), signed onto the American Business Act for Climate Change and reset our absolute carbon reduction goal to 45 percent by 2020.

25 Jun: A Decade of Dedication

Happy 10th Anniversary, Best Buy Sustainability Report!

We’ve come a long way since our first Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability report in 2006. During this journey, we have tried 50 different ways to make an infographic, coerced co-workers into posing for photos, dabbled in QR codes, and conquered GRI G4.

We’ve gone from “rah-rah” Best Buy to digging into serious issues that affect our business and the world. From E-waste Recycling to Human Rights, we have stayed true to our objective over the years – to positively impact our world.
