Best Buy Takes a Stand April 3, 2010 : 11:47 AM

Best Buy has joined a growing list of Chamber of Commerce members to take a stand against the organization's position on the climate crisis. In their press release they wrote:

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization with varied business stakeholders and interests. Those interests among industry don’t always align; on the issue of climate change legislation and regulatory actions, we have certainly seen this to be the case. Best Buy has stated that we are supportive of comprehensive climate change legislation and working to move toward a low carbon economy. With regard to the Chamber’s climate initiatives, the Chamber has not spoken for Best Buy on these issues. We have shared our views with the Chamber and will continue to do so. Best Buy’s commitment to sustainability aligns with global interests in addressing climate change. Best Buy is an innovator in offering our customers products and services that enable them to live more sustainably.”

Good for Best Buy. Unlike the Chamber, they recognize that comprehensive legislation will help our economy and create jobs.
