Best Buy Brings New Energy Management to Stores
Best Buy announced Thursday that it has begun implementation on a new energy management system that the company predicts will reduce its energy costs and carbon outputs by 15 percent within three years.
The system will be in 300 stores by the end of next January and all 1,105 of Best Buy's U.S. locations by the middle of 2012.
"Not only is energy management and efficiency a top priority for Best Buy from an environmental standpoint, but it is the smart thing to do for our business," Tim Sheehan, Best Buy's executive vice president and chief administrative officer, said as part of the announcement. "This energy management system is just one of the many ways we are working to meet our overall goal to reduce carbon across our brands and operations by 20 percent over the next eight years."
