About Mountain Equipment Co-Op

Mountain Equipment Co-op is Canada’s leading outdoor-gear retailer. Wilderness conservation and encouragement of self-propelled recreation are MEC’s focus.

Committed to strong social and environmental ethics, MEC promotes fair labour practices among its suppliers, embraces vigorous green building standards, and constantly seeks to reduce its ecological footprint.

MEC is a member of the One Percent for the Planet group of companies, giving one percent of total revenue to finance community-based environmental initiatives. MEC members (the co-op’s customers) vote on how this grassroots organization is governed.
