Weyerhaeuser seeks to build relationships with our suppliers based on mutual benefit, trust, performance and a joint commitment
to continuous improvement. We expect—and our contracts require—suppliers to operate ethically and to comply with all contract
terms, laws and regulations.
Standard terms of purchase apply to our U.S.- and Canadian-based contracts
and require suppliers to comply with all company policies, as well as all applicable laws, including health and safety,
environmental, and labor and employment. Our suppliers must also become familiar with, comply with, and maintain policies
consistent with Weyerhaeuser's standard environmental, health and safety requirements. We apply our ethical conduct standards
when selecting suppliers and business partners and also expect suppliers to act in accordance with our supplier code of ethics when working on our behalf. We screen suppliers for human rights issues
selectively based on risk.
Our core policy details our expectations of suppliers and what they can expect of us. If a supplier fails to conform to
the requirements, improvement plans are developed and implemented. Where improvement in critical areas is not sustained,
a supplier will be replaced. These principles are consistent with the Institute for Supply Management's Principles of Social
Responsibility, which we adopted in 2005.
We are committed to a strong, diverse supplier base as well as an effective supply chain. We participate in activities sponsored
by the Northwest Minority Supplier Development Council, the National Minority Supplier Development Council, and the Woman's
Business Enterprise National Council. We recognize that talent and innovation are found everywhere in our communities, and
seek diversity among our suppliers.
