This report covers REI's 2010 fiscal year, and is our fifth annual report (following our 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 reports).
We report on all of our operations, almost all of which are all U.S-based. The exceptions to our U.S.-based operations are our international REI Adventures trips that run in more than 40 countries.
We include the impacts from both owned and leased facilities.
In one notable case, we report directly on third-party vendors to address our fair labor and factory compliance work, which details our efforts with our REI-brand gear and apparel supply chain. We contract all of our manufacturing to third-party vendors.
Also, our report covers our operational footprint (both direct and indirect aspects), but it does not tackle accounting the embedded environmental attributes of products in our GHG or energy sections, for example.
Links to REI's specific environmental metholoday and policies, and our latest Climate Counts scorecard are as follows:
