These emissions are generated from sources including fuel used in fleet vehicles and refrigerants that may escape from one of our building's HVAC systems. While these miscellaneous emissions continue to represent a very small percentage of our total climate impact, they remain difficult to fully eliminate.
In 2010, miscellaneous emissions increased by 21.7 percent to 443 tons of CO2. We expect these sources to remain inconsequential and insignificant contributors to REI's total GHG footprint.
For the foreseeable future, we will continue to address these small sources of GHG emissions on a case-by-case basis by weighing the considerable efforts required to fully eliminate.
