We understand that it's critical to build strong relationships with our many stakeholders. From rural communities where we own and manage timberlands to national government bodies, we're committed to stakeholder engagement. 

STAKEHOLDER COMMUNICATIONS AND INQUIRIES

We communicate openly with our stakeholders and follow companywide policies to ensure all our communications:  

  • Reflect our company vision.
  • Demonstrate alignment across businesses and regions.
  • Are legal, ethical and accurate.
  • Do not contain proprietary information or information that would qualify as selective disclosure.

We track requests for issues and information our customers and other stakeholders care about. We respond to these inquiries by providing easy access to our online sustainability report, writing letters and emails and engaging directly with stakeholders. We welcome these opportunities to answer questions about our practices, to share information about our company and to receive feedback to help us improve our practices and products.

Sustainability-related inquiries from our customers and stakeholders focus primarily on our environmental practices, including:

  • Forest management.
  • Biodiversity in our forests.
  • Regulatory compliance.
  • Forest and fiber-sourcing certification. 
  • Green building.
  • Chemical content and use.
  • Product-specific information, such as origin of fiber and environmental footprint.
  • Community giving and volunteering.
  • Executive compensation and governance.

In addition to inquiries related to our environmental practices, we receive inquiries through EthicsLine, our annual shareholder meeting and the numerous "Contact Us" sections of our website.

STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

Our stakeholder engagement process varies widely based on the project, issue or group. 

Customers

We engage with our customers primarily through day-to-day personal contact via our sales and marketing teams. We also invite customers to learn more about our company on our website, at forums and on field trips. We respond to their specific queries through surveys and provide input at their request on topics such as procurement and supplier-qualification processes.

Investors 

We engage in regular two-way discussions with our institutional shareholders, host an annual investor meeting and provide periodic investment presentations via webcast. Our earnings reports are webcast each quarter and we provide detailed information about our company in our Annual Report and on our investor website

Suppliers

In addition to day-to-day contact with our suppliers as we procure goods and services, we also provide information to promote sustainable forestry practices among small forest owners who supply our mills with wood fiber. Suppliers must comply with our Supplier Code of Ethics.

Policymakers & Regulators

Our government relations team and other leaders regularly interact with policymakers in the United States and Canada. We support direct advocacy engagement by our employees and are members in trade associations and issue coalitions. We provide legal and ethical campaign contributions, support grassroots letter-writing campaigns and serve on governmental advisory committees.

Employees

In addition to periodic employee surveys and direct leadership engagement with teams, our CEO and senior leadership host town hall meetings and company-wide forums. Our internal website features daily news, polls, reader comments and a message forum where employees can share opinions and observations. We have a number of internal blogs written by senior leaders and subject-matter experts. We also periodically measure the overall effectiveness of our work environment via employee surveys.  

Communities

We engage with community leaders and members of the public in a variety of ways, including town halls and in-person meetings. We have public consultation processes in Canada, including engagement with First Nations, and community advisory panels in the United States. We make philanthropic contributions and encourage and reward employee volunteerism in our communities. We host tours of our facilities and support two forestry-learning centers. We build relationships with local media to help tell our company story to community stakeholders.


LIVING OUR VALUES
Pitching in to build a home for families in need

Hubbell Homes, the largest homebuilder in Iowa, has been an important partner to Weyerhaeuser for nearly 20 years. So when they demolished an old Ronald McDonald house in Des Moines, Iowa, and put up a new one, we were on hand to help.

Our oriented strand board panels are at the core of the three-floor, 18-room facility, which provides a home away from home for families who have critically-ill children in local hospitals. Our donation covered 50 percent of the OSB panels used in the new home.

During the 11-day, around-the-clock effort, more than 800 volunteers, ranging from the building trades to security, showed up to help.

All together, these contributions of labor and materials covered half of the $3 million estimated cost of the facility.

We're happy to pitch in and help keep families together when they need it most.


Non-governmental organizations

We engage and partner with numerous NGOs to conduct wildlife, biodiversity and other environmental research on our lands or in nearby communities. We also provide support for organizations that promote sustainable business practices. We participate in local, regional, national and global forums with multiple stakeholders and we directly engage in public policy development. 

A few of the groups we work with include: American Bird Conservancy, American Forest Foundation, American Tree Farm System, Bird Studies Canada, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society,  Ducks Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Foothills Growth and Yield Association, Forest Climate Working Group, Forest History Society, Forest Society of Maine, fRI Research, Green Blue, Green Building Initiative, Montana Natural Heritage Program, National Wild Turkey Foundation, NatureServe, New Hampshire Audubon, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Sustainable Biomass Program High Conservation Value Task Group, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Sustainable Packaging Coalition, The Nature Conservancy, The Wildlife Society, Trout Unlimited, Trust for Public Lands, US Green Building Council, Vermont Center for Ecostudies, West Virginia Conservation Agency, Wildlife Management Institute, WoodWorks, and World Resources Institute.

Universities and Research

We engage with universities and governmental organizations that conduct research advancing scientific understanding of our industry. We participate in cooperative research with select universities on forestry, sustainability and innovation topics, as well as with governmental research labs, such as forest products labs and the Department of Energy research labs. We are a longtime member of the National Council on Air and Stream Improvement, the Stand Management Cooperative at the University of Washington, and the Forest Productivity Cooperative, to name a few. 

We also support the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change Forum, the Forest Carbon and Climate Program at Michigan State University, the Cooperative Forestry Research Unit at the University of Maine, and a number of Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Chairs at the University of Alberta. 

These partnerships are strongly supported by our in-house scientists, who publish numerous peer-reviewed papers in journals and present at national and international conferences.
