|20%Reduction in Energy Intensity||Goal Achieved|
Best Buy is a leading provider of technology products, services and solutions. With more than 44 million square feet of operational and retail space in the U.S., Best Buy has continuously sought to build greater efficiency across its stores and operations, including finding cost-effective solutions to save energy, and directly reduce emissions of carbon into our atmosphere.
Since 2008, in its U.S. buildings, Best Buy has achieved a 35% reduction through multiple initiatives, such as installing an energy management system to centrally control temperature and lighting in all "big box" stores. In addition, more than 840 stores received lower-wattage fluorescent ceiling fixtures, reducing its lighting energy usage by nearly half and creating a brighter store environment.
