Best Buy's Commitment to the Environment

Making a positive impact on the planet, together.

We're working with customers and partners to create a more sustainable world for us all.

Our mission.

We all have a role to play in preserving our planet. Across Best Buy in Canada and the US, we are committed to our role of being an environmentally responsible organization.

As a company, Best Buy is dedicated to adapting and evolving our business to reduce carbon emissions and waste.

Across Canada and the US, we're working together to achieve our sustainability goals.

Reducing carbon emissions in our operations by 75%.

We plan to decrease carbon emissions in our operations by 75% (over our 2009 baseline) to reach our goal of being carbon neutral by 2040.

Reducing carbon emissions for our customers by 20%.

We plan to lower carbon emissions for our customers by 20% (over our 2017 baseline) by 2030, saving $5 billion in energy costs.

Working together to achieve our goals.

Our initiatives to help the environment.

At Best Buy Canada we're tackling multiple initiatives to promote sustainability and improve our relationship with the environment.

Circular Techonomy.

Take a circular economy, mix it with a focus on technology, and you get a “Circular Techonomy.” This is a system where nothing is wasted, following the principles of reuse, reduce, and recycle. We keep products in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from the products while in use, then recover and recycle products and materials at the end of their lives.

Promoting energy-efficient products.

We're offering a wide range of eco-friendly products that conserve resources, such as ENERGY STAR™ certified products. These products can help you reduce energy usage and monthly costs.

Finding ways to increase overall efficiencies.

As a company, we're exploring how we can be more efficient and environmentally friendly across the organization. Some examples include converting all our store lighting to LED, adopting routing logic to reduce fuel consumption across our Geek Squad fleet and delivery service, and operating an energy management system at our Canadian headquarters.

The Green Team.

We've created a team, selected from different areas of Best Buy Canada, dedicated to helping us achieve our sustainability objectives. The Green Team assesses if we're doing enough to meet our goals and works to raise awareness of our environmental efforts with team members, customers, and vendors.
