Best Buy is proud to be recognized by CDP for our climate management strategies and carbon emission reduction.
Our 2016 A- score demonstrates an ongoing commitment to reducing emissions in our operations and sourcing renewable energy, as well as helping our customers lead more sustainable lives. We are among the highest scoring U.S. retailers.
Best Buy has been working to reduce carbon emissions since setting our first carbon goal in 2009. After exceeding our 20 percent reduction goal in 2014, weset a new goalto reduce carbon emissions by 45 percent by 2020.
We believe that effectively managing our environmental impacts, setting science-based goals and advancing energy-efficient consumer solutions creates long-term value for all of our stakeholders.
