Weyerhaeuser Publishes 2003 Sustainability Report
Federal Way, WA— What does the planting of 132 million trees, preserving endangered caribou and recovering six million tons of paper have in common?
They are all examples of Weyerhaeuser Company’s commitment to the environment and society highlighted in the “2003 Roadmap for Sustainability.” A printable version will be available in late June.
In the report, Weyerhaeuser informs readers about their stand on old-growth forests, boreal forests, tropical forests, reducing pollution, and recycling. Hundreds of facts detail the company’s performance — from how many trees the company planted in 2003 to the amount of energy co-generated to the number of employees trained in business ethics. The report also includes facts such as number and amount of environmental fines, safety performance, and progress toward a diverse workforce.
Among the annual accomplishments highlighted in the report:
Although the company has published an annual environmental report since 1993 and a citizenship report since 2001, last year it combined the two reports into a single “triple bottom line” review of environmental, social and economic performance. Like last year’s report, the 2003 edition follows guidelines recommended by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
