Minneapolis Best Buy Co., Inc. has announced plans to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 8% per square foot across all U.S. stores and operations, including its corporate headquarters, fleet, and distribution centers by 2012.
According to a release, all new stores will be built with skylights and high-efficiency lighting, heating and cooling systems.
The company also will adopt a no-idling policy for its fleet, retrofit existing stores with skylights and upgrade their lighting and HVAC, and upgrade its energy-management system to address energy spikes in particular locations.
In addition, Best Buy will test solar panels in certain stores.
