Best Buy Launches Forest Stewardship Council Certified Packaging
Best Buy Corporate | September 8, 2021
Starting this month, Best Buy's outer box packaging of some TVs within its own Insignia brand is being made with sustainably sourced paper that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This ensures that packaging comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits to help protect the planet — today and tomorrow.
“Our sustainability journey has pushed us to continually find new ways to innovate within our operations and beyond,” said Tim Dunn, Best Buy’s head of environmental sustainability. “This certification ensures that more than 6 million pounds of paper annually are responsibly sourced, and it is another step in Best Buy’s continued journey to protect the environment.”
Best Buy also joins the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, a nonprofit organization driving meaningful action toward packaging sustainability throughout the value chain. This supplements its commitment from 2015 for the “I Want To Be Recycled” campaign to motivate communities across the country to recycle. Best Buy's environmental goals include being carbon neutral across the business by 2040 and reducing 20% of customer carbon emissions by 2030. Partnering with customer's Best Buy commits to making a difference.
