COVERAGE AND SCOPE

COVERAGE

  • Financial results are for fiscal year 2013.
  • Except where noted, this report covers all our operations for the calendar year 2013.
  • Specific to Environmental Data:
    • Included:
      • Our global operations owned in 2013 (cellulose fibers facilities, including our newsprint joint venture with Nippon Paper, NORPAC; lumber and engineered wood products manufacturing locations; and our corporate headquarters building and technology center in Federal Way, Washington).
    • Not included:
      • Operations sold or closed during 2013, our homebuilding subsidiaries (given the impending sale of WRECO and their relatively minor contribution of environmental impacts compared with our manufacturing facilities, we opted not to collect data from these businesses in 2013), and our wood products distribution centers (insignificant environmental footprint contribution compared with our manufacturing facilities)

SOURCES

  • Established internal databases used regularly by our operations
  • Environmental data reported to the EPA and other regulatory agencies
  • Annual companywide internal survey
  • At the facility level, physical measurement, representative and other sampling, application of standard government factors, and recognized industry factors
  • Calculations are performed using measured data as well as commonly recognized engineering standards. All equations and estimations used in calculating environmental data are accepted industry wide and by all pertinent regulatory authorities.

VERIFICATION

  • Each section of this website is drafted and/or reviewed by internal subject-matter experts to ensure accuracy.
  • Final draft of the website is reviewed by key senior leaders and subject-matter experts to ensure the information is accurately communicated, appropriate for public disclosure, and is significant to us or our stakeholders.
  • Each page notes the date content was last reviewed and updated as needed on the bottom of the page.
  • In 2012, our internal audit team conducted a review of our data gathering and management processes and found no major issues. We plan to have our internal audit team periodically review our report content and process.

Our Product Environmental Profiles include GHG emission estimates of chemical additives used in the final products and are based on production and published GHG emission factors, aligned with industry consensus standards.

By far, Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions are most relevant to our company. In 2013, we evaluated including Scope 3 categories into our GHG inventory, based on WRI’s “Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standards.” Eight of the fifteen Scope 3 categories were considered related to our company, but we have chosen not to initiate this work until customer requests increase to a significant level and industry-specific guidelines are developed to ensure comparability with other forest product companies.

We are a large, vertically integrated company, with most of our value chain embedded in our company. The majority of our suppliers are small forest landowners, who are already helping reduce the risk of climate change by managing forest land - nature’s best carbon capturing systems.

We do not disclose new hires or turnovers by gender or age group.
G4-LA2 Benefits provided to full-time employees not provided to other employees Less than 2 percent of our employees are part-time or temporary. Thus, we do not consider this metric to be significant to our company.
G4-LA3 Return to work and retention rates after parental leave We do not distinguish parental leave from other medical leave, thus do not separately track this information.
Labor/Management Relations
G4-DMA Our Story - Strategy

Our labor relations continue to be guided by principles jointly developed with the union that represents a majority of the employees in our U.S.-based businesses. The principles are designed to foster cooperative relationships and employee empowerment.

Our company's labor principles allow North American employees the right to free association, including the right to freely choose to organize and bargain collectively. We believe these rights are not at risk at any Weyerhaeuser operation.

G4-LA4 Minimum notice periods regarding significant operational changes Our labor contracts generally require five to 10 day advance notice to change employees' scheduled hours of work. In addition, the U.S. WARN Act requires 60 day notice of major changes. If the company needs to curtail operations sooner, we pay employees for the notice period.

G4-LA8 Health and safety topics covered in formal agreements with trade unions Union representatives play a significant role in safety and health. They participate in joint union-management safety committees and represent workers in joint investigations, coaching and counseling. We first introduced high-performance or total-quality work systems in the late 1970s. These systems are designed to increase employee participation in decisions that affect their jobs and to improve business performance. In our union and nonunion facilities, participative work systems are part of our business strategy and planning. At our facilities with high-performance work systems, process reliability is higher than at our traditionally managed facilities.
