Best Buy is committed to helping our customers live more sustainable lives – reducing their carbon footprint and saving money on their utility bills. But we don’t just sell sustainable products, we manufacture them too. For the first time, one of our private-label products (we call Exclusive Brands) was named an ENERGY STAR Most Efficient product for 2016. It’s our new full-size Insignia refrigerator.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this distinction from ENERGY STAR highlights products that deliver cutting edge energy efficiency, along with the latest in technological innovation. The best of the best.
“We are thrilled to receive this honor from ENERGY STAR,” said Gail Gibbs, vice president and general manager of Exclusive Brands. “Providing sustainable products is a pillar of our sustainability strategy. We are truly walking the walk by manufacturing an affordable refrigerator to the highest standard in energy efficiency.”
Insignia is one of Best Buy’s private label brands, which we have manufactured since 2004. Others brands include Rocketfish, Modal, Platinum and Dynex.
