From the gear and apparel we manufacture and sell to the services we offer through educational and adventure travel programming, REI’s business relies on the availability and preservation of shared outdoor spaces. We are acutely aware that our business impacts the environment, which is why REI’s commitment to sustainability is embedded in our operations across the company.
We take a comprehensive view of our environmental impact using a framework that reflects the work of the Outdoor Industry Association’s Sustainability Working Group and apply it to our operational footprint. From this complete view, has chosen to establish key performance metrics for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), energy use and waste to landfill. We also report key metrics on our paper use.
