+ Outdoor Research is a proud founding member of the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) Climate Action Corps. Together with the OIA, they're making changes that aim to make the outdoor industry the world’s first climate-positive industry by 2030.
+ Each of Outdoor Research's products made with recycled content has the same quality as seen in other Outdoor Research gear, but with less impact on the planet. When you buy gear that’s made with recycled content, you’re reducing waste, energy usage, and dependence on petroleum.
+ Outdoor Research is committing to 100% renewable energy for all of their North American
operations. They are calculating their carbon footprint to begin looking at which reductions will
make the greatest impact on their business, and the greatest positive impact on the climate.

- follow a set of guidelines that help Outdoor Research ensure socially responsible operations.
