2022 Impact Report

The collective good a co-op can do

REI is a different kind of company. As a co-op, we measure success against our positive impact on our employees, members, society and business. Our Impact Report shows what we've done (with your support!) to help connect every person to the power of the outdoors and engage them in the fight to protect it.

2022 Highlights

Cooperative Action

More than 78,000 members of the REI community have joined us in advocating for the outdoors through our grassroots advocacy program since its 2021 launch. Together, we’ve sent more than 250,000 messages to decision-makers at the state and national levels, helping to pass three bills that tackle the climate crisis and make the outdoors a more equitable place to recreate.

Co-op Membership

For the first time in 84 years, we significantly changed the ways that members can connect with the co-op. A lifetime REI membership includes benefits that make it easier for people to make the most out of every experience outside and be part of a community that supports a new outdoor culture.
