103-1 Explanation of the material topic and its boundary Ethics & Transparency  

Except where noted, this report covers all Weyerhaeuser operations for the calendar year 2019. Our environmental data is specific to our operations owned in 2019. 

We do not include operations sold during 2019; our offices; or our distribution centers, which have an insignificant environmental footprint compared to our manufacturing facilities. 

 

 

 
103-2 The management approach and its components

Our Company Vision, Code of Ethics and Supplier Code of Ethics create the foundation for the way that we operate. Should any of our stakeholders have concerns about the way that we do business, we encourage them to contact our EthicsLine at 800-716-3488 or use Weyerhaeuser Ethics Online

We set the right goals and report on our progress. We use a variety of mechanisms to establish and monitor goals, including: 

  • Established internal databases used regularly by our operations. 
  • Environmental data reported to the EPA and other regulatory agencies. 
  • Annual companywide internal surveys. 
  • Physical measurements and representative and other sampling at our facilities. 
  • 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. 

Each section of this website is drafted and/or reviewed by internal subject-matter experts to ensure accuracy. The 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 and our shareholders.

GRI 205: ANTI-CORRUPTION
205-1 Operations assessed for risks related to corruption We are committed to obeying the law in all countries where we do business. We have adopted policies and standards to ensure that we comply with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and similar anti-corruption laws in each country where we do business.   
100% of our main businesses and staff function groups are analyzed each year. We disclose material risks in our periodic filings to the SEC.   
205-2 Communication and training about anti-corruption policies and procedures Values: Integrity  
We regularly train employees on anti-bribery. Our contracts and purchasing policies require agents, contractors, suppliers, service providers and joint-venture partners to comply with our Anti-Bribery Policy, as well as all statutes and regulations regarding corruption and bribery. We require 100% of targeted employees and third-party intermediaries to take anti-bribery training. The target audience for anti-bribery training is all senior management team members and their direct reports; all salaried employees who might be expected to interact with foreign government officials (as broadly defined under the FCPA, this includes any foreign government official, any person acting on their behalf, such as a consultant, and employees of state-owned companies); U.S., Canadian, and international employees who work in international sales, customer service with international responsibilities, and trade/export; and staff function employees in finance, human resources, information technology or other areas who have international responsibilities and might be expected to interact with foreign government officials. Leaders are also encouraged to invite the sales agents, distributors, consultants, and other third parties with whom they do business to attend the leader-led sessions.

GRI 206: ANTI-COMPETITIVE BEHAVIOR
206-1 Legal actions for anti-competitive behavior, antitrust, and monopoly practices Our employees are expected to comply with our company’s core policy, as well as all U.S. and other countries' laws, regulating unlawful anti-competitive behavior. Employees receive regular training and materials as part of our antitrust and competition law compliance program and are responsible for being aware of the risk and costs of violating the laws and complying with our guidelines for behavior. We disclose all material litigation and legal proceedings in our periodic filings to the SEC.

GRI 305: EMISSIONS
305-1 Direct (Scope 1) GHG emissions Improving Air Quality

We utilize standards from the World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard to calculate our annual greenhouse gas emission inventory. 

Gases included in the calculations include: Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), and Nitrous Oxide (N2O). 

National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, Inc. calculation tools for estimating greenhouse gas emissions from wood products facilities and NCASI tool to calculate carbon stored in forest products are used. 

Our estimates of greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration represent our corporate carbon scope 1 (direct) and scope 2 (purchased electricity) inventory. They do not include emissions not owned or controlled by Weyerhaeuser. 

Our Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG-generating emissions include stationary sources, mobile sources, and process emissions, including all Weyerhaeuser-owned industrial stationary sources, which combust fossil fuels and burn biomass in the U.S. and Canada; all Weyerhaeuser-owned landfills; mobile sources, including Weyerhaeuser aviation, logging trucks, and company-owned and -leased vehicles; fertilizer application (e.g., N2O emissions) on Weyerhaeuser timberlands; purchased electricity and purchased steam.  

Weyerhaeuser utilizes a threshold of significance and assumes that any source of emissions that represents less than 2% of total annual emissions is de minimis and will not be included in the inventory. 

Our greenhouse gas inventory process adheres to the guidelines published by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative's Greenhouse Gas Protocol, Revised Edition, and its associated calculation tools that are relevant to our operations. Following the protocol, adjustments to the baseline year and subsequent years’ data have been made on a whole-year basis for divestments and acquisitions affecting our greenhouse gas inventory. In 2017, we also adjusted our baseline and all subsequent years to correctly account for the appropriate eGRID emission factors for the closest respective year; previously, we incorrectly recalculated all years with the most recent eGRID emission factors. The absolute value of our entire greenhouse gas emission inventory can change as a result of these adjustments. 

We know forests sequester and release carbon in variable amounts over time. The rate of forest carbon sequestration is subject to seasonal variation, annual variation due to climate and disturbance impacts, age-related variation due to the natural cycle of tree growth, and effects from forest management practices such as fertilization and harvesting. The U.S. Department of Energy 1605(b) guidelines affirm that sustainably managed forests balance harvest and growth cycles over time and landscape and can be considered carbon neutral, meaning the carbon that is released from harvesting is offset by the growth of the remaining trees. To quantify the amount of long-term forest products carbon stored in our products – which we call Product Sequestration – we use the US Forest Service 100-year average carbon storage estimates approach and a tool produced by a research organization supporting our industry.

305-3 Other indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions 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. Most of our suppliers are small forest landowners, who are already helping reduce the risk of climate change by managing forestlands - nature’s best carbon capturing systems.

401-3 Parental leave On Dec. 4, 2019, we announced that on Jan. 1, 2020, we would offer paid parental leave: all U.S. nonunion employees will be able to take up to four weeks of fully paid leave upon the arrival of a new child or children in their family. (Canadian employees receive parental leave in accordance with provincial employment standards.) This is in addition to our current six-week disability leave for birth mothers, adoption assistance program, and other family-related benefits.   
GRI 402: LABOR/MANAGEMENT RELATIONS
402-1 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 covered plant closings and covered mass layoffs. If the company needs to curtail operations sooner, we pay employees for the notice period.

403-4 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.

Some ecosystem services provided by our timberlands do not lend themselves to annual reporting due to a lack of quantitative measures, insufficient reporting units or the service having been recently discontinued. These services are important reflections of the value provided by our timberlands and could lend themselves to fuller description in the future, if not annual tracking.

Carbon Sequestration

Estimated carbon stored in our wood products (million metric tons of CO2e)*

* Calculated using the NCASI Carbon Storage tool based on data developed by the U.S. Forest Service (Technical Bulletin 1939, July 2014). This number is the benefit to the climate due to keeping carbon stored in products (and carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere) over 100 years. It includes statistics on the end-use of our products as well as how long the products are expected to be in use.

Carbon dioxide emissions from biologically sequestered carbon (million metric tons CO2)**

** In accordance with the GHG Protocol Corporate Reporting Standard, we report the CO2 emissions associated with the combustion of biomass fuels, such as wood and wood waste, separately from the scopes. This biomass fuel is a mix of mill residuals and forest residuals sourced from sustainably managed forests in regions where carbon stocks are stable or increasing. This means it is considered carbon neutral, meaning the growth of trees in the region is more than the harvest and mortality (also, the carbon in the biomass originated in the atmosphere and the biomass is regrown after a harvest). We do, however, include the CH4 and N2O emissions associated with the combustion of biomass in our Scope 1 GHG emissions.
