For the third year in a row, Corporate Responsibility Magazine has named Best Buy to its list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens.
The rankings are based on 260 data points, including environmental management, climate change, human rights, employee relations, corporate governance, philanthropy and financial performance.
Our position has steadily increased over the past three years, from 100 in 2016, to 72 in 2017 to 59 in 2018.
Being a good corporate citizen is not only the right thing to do, it’s good for business. Our company needs a healthy planet, strong communities and engaged employees to be successful.
Our Best Buy 2020: Building the New Blue goals reflect our commitment to people, communities and the environment:
- Prepare 1 million teens from underserved communities for the tech reliant jobs of the future.
- Reduce our carbon emissions 60 percent (over a 2009 baseline).
- Collect 2 billion pounds of electronics and appliances for recycling.
