Best Buy expects manufacturers (including manufacturers of Best Buy's private-label products), vendors, and suppliers of new goods that we sell in our retail stores and online (collectively "Suppliers") to meet and maintain fundamental labor and human rights standards. Specifically, we include language in our Supplier Code of Conduct and in our contracts with Suppliers specifying that Suppliers will not use any forced labor, whether in the form of prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor or otherwise. Failure by a Supplier to meet our Supplier Code of Conduct or the terms of our contract would subject the Supplier to possible actions by Best Buy, up to and including the termination of Best Buy's contract and business relationship with the Supplier.
Best Buy actively works at industry levels to respond to social and environmental concerns in consumer electronics and retailing. In addition, Best Buy is a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), an industry group striving to address human trafficking and slavery in the electronics supply chain, among many other important issues.
