Weyerhaeuser provides sustainability update

Weyerhaeuser shared the results of its 11th annual sustainability report, with highlights that included a perfect timberlands certification record.

"It all comes back to flawless execution to achieve our vision: working together to grow a truly great company for our shareholders, customers and employees.

Among its sustainability initiatives last year was a new data collection program that streamlined and simplified report content.
