MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 11, 2007--At Best Buy, we aspire to be a responsible, values-driven global corporation - and whether you're an employee, customer, shareholder, community member, or business partner, we believe that's what you expect.
We are pleased to announce that the fiscal 2007 Best Buy Co., Inc.
corporate responsibility report is now available for download from our newest Web site, www.bestbuy.com/responsibility. The report provides a summary of how our operations in the past year affected not only our financial performance, but our impact on people, products, and the environment. And the Web site provides a greater glimpse inside Best Buy - you'll see the faces of our employees and stakeholders, and hear what they expect of our company.
Best Buy is on a journey, and we do not claim to always have the best practices in place. However, we do believe we can live our values, through our people and operations, anywhere we go on this planet. And we believe in customer centricity - the idea is that a customer isn't just looking for a product, but a solution or experience that improves her or his life. Both our values and customer centricity demand responsible business decisions. To us, corporate responsibility isn't a function unto itself; instead, it's the job of every function, every operation, and every employee around the world.
Today, we invite you to visit our site, read our report, listen to the voices of our stakeholders, and share your feedback. Looking ahead, we believe our values, customer centricity, and the voice of our stakeholders will together help us constantly evolve our definition of the "right business decision" for Best Buy.
