Our Environment

Qurate Retail, Inc., believes in working to keep our environment cleaner and healthier. We are proud to have our headquarters overlooking the Colorado Rockies. We understand that sustainability is without a doubt one of the most pressing challenge facing the planet and humanity today. Every day, Qurate Retail takes steps to preserve the natural beauty of the surroundings that we are privileged to enjoy.

Since climate risk can manifest itself through many of the existing risks in our Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) process (including strategic, financial, operational, reputational, etc.), we work to consider how climate-driven risks can be embedded into current risk management frameworks.

Carbon Footprint

At Qurate Retail, we understand the rapid effects of climate change and growing importance of corporate sustainability. As a global company, one that believes in doing things the right way, we have a responsibility to reduce the impact our operations have on the planet in the creation of greenhouse gas emissions. We completed our first global carbon footprint across scopes 1 & 2 emissions, culminating in the setting of an initial emissions reductions target.

Alternative Energy Investments

Qurate Retail, Inc. (and its predecessor entities) have invested in various alternative energy assets since 2011. Our portfolio today includes a mix of solar, wind and clean coal assets. We continue to explore new investment prospects as the innovative renewable energy universe expands, and we expect these opportunities to be part of Qurate Retail’s investment strategy going forward.

These investments provide significant greenhouse gas emission reductions and help offset our carbon footprint. Collectively, the projects we’ve invested in produce more than 700,000 MWHs/year of clean energy and reduce CO2 equivalent emissions by over 3 million tons per year.
