We create useful products made from trees, one of nature's most remarkable and renewable resources. In turn, we have a responsibility to ensure our products are safe and healthy for the people who make and use them, as well as for the environment.
Our comprehensive Product Stewardship Policy outlines our commitment to considering the environmental, health and safety implications of our products, from product design to end of life. Implementation of this policy reduces risk and liability, promotes compliance with applicable regulations and helps deliver sustainable products to the marketplace.
Our chemical management program works hand in hand with our product stewardship program to reduce risk companywide by comprehensively managing chemicals approved for use, reducing or eliminating the overall number of chemicals used in our operations, and implementing, whenever possible, the use of less-hazardous substitutes for chemicals. We also use a companywide database — accessible to all employees — for all safety data sheets and labels for hazardous chemicals.
In addition, we are committed to sharing our safety data sheets and corresponding product labels to help ensure that our customers, and our customers’ employees, handle and use our products safely.
Each safety data sheet listed below includes the corresponding product labels on the last page.
Annually, we publicly report the release of certain chemicals into the air, water and land under the U.S. Toxics Release Inventory (search for a specific Weyerhaeuser facility in "TRI Facility Name") and the Canadian National Pollutant Release Inventory (search for "Weyerhaeuser" in "Company or Facility Name"). With rare exceptions, these are lawfully permitted releases that are made in a controlled fashion after steps have been taken to reduce the emissions and mitigate their effects. Both inventories mandate that we report total emissions without regard to changes in production levels.
We also provide detailed information for our Kenora TimberStrand facility under Ontario's Toxic Substance Accounting program:
Kenora TimberStrand Toxic Substance Accounting for 2018 and 2019.
Kenora TimberStrand Toxic Substance Reduction Plans for 2011 (cadmium, formaldehyde, methanol and zinc); 2012 (carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, phosphorus, MDI, pMDI, total particulate matter, particulate matter < 10 microns [PM10], and particulate matter < 2.5 microns [PM2.5]); and 2017 (ethyl acetate).
