Qurate Retail Group

Qurate Retail Group believes in a Third Way to Shop®. The company includes seven leading retail brands, reaching approximately 380 million homes worldwide via 15 television networks. Qurate's building portfolio includes global, market and brand headquarters, television studios, contact and fulfillment centers.

Qurate Retail Group believes in a more sustainable way to retail, however, with this comes responsibility. That responsibility means making sure that Qurate helps build a better world. Qurate Retail Group understands that climate change is without a doubt one of the most pressing challenges facing the planet and humanity today. As a global company, one that believes in doing things the right way, Qurate has a responsibility to reduce the impact its operations have on the planet in the creation of greenhouse gas emissions. In partnership with the DOE, through the Better Buildings Challenge, Qurate Retail Group is further committed to working cooperatively with like-minded organizations on solutions that support what is a global crisis.

Qurate Retail Group's strategy is built upon the three pillars of reduce, replace, and balance.

  • Reduce energy consumption through investment in real-time monitoring and targeting of energy usage, LED lighting programs, team member engagement, finance, resources, collaboration and cooperation across all business units, and the improved energy performance of all new build and refurbished construction projects.
  • Replace with renewable onsite sources of energy generation, solar, and wind.
  • Balance offset any further energy needs through our support of renewable energy, and carbon sequestering projects.

Qurate Retail Group has been retrofitting and installing new LED lighting across its varied real estate. Benefits include increased lighting levels, an improved team member experience, reduced operational costs, and a meaningful lowering of carbon emissions. The company will continue to roll-out LED lighting as it further invests in reducing its carbon footprint.
