22 Jun: Best Buy Unveils South Carolina Solar Field

Best Buy has cut our carbon footprint in half since 2009, and now we’re making our biggest commitment yet to renewable energy.

In collaboration with solar developer X-Elio and U.S. Bank, we are proud to unveil the Best Buy Solar Field in Martin, South Carolina. This project will produce 174,000 megawatt hours of clean electricity per year for the local power grid — enough to power the equivalent of 260 Best Buy stores for an entire year.

The Best Buy Solar Field underscores our commitment to enriching lives through technology.

25 Jun: Best Buy Reports on Sustainability Progress, Goals for 2020

Best Buy today released our latest Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability Report, including two new sustainability goals as part of our Best Buy 2020 growth strategy.

This report is where we annually share our commitments and progress in the areas of community, people and the environment. We have seen increased interest from consumers and investors for companies to make a positive impact on the world.

For Best Buy, sustainability has been a priority for more than a decade, and we are proud of our successes, which not only benefit our stakeholders but make good business sense too.

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.
