Our vision is to deliver superior sustainable solutions to the world. We are uniquely qualified to achieve our vision by addressing society’s needs with products made from trees, a remarkable renewable resource.
Trees use sunlight, carbon dioxide and water to grow. We use innovation and long-term planning to help our trees grows straighter and stronger, and to yield more and better trees on the land we manage. Managed well, this vast resource can be responsibly used to provide shelter, create green energy and make lives more comfortable for centuries to come.
As we develop new products, we take health, safety, legal, regulatory and environmental issues into account by identifying potential concerns and mitigating or resolving any issues before commercializing a product.
Our commitment to product responsibility starts with complying with all applicable regulations. We work to ensure our food-contact packaging materials comply with the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act regulations.
REACH, or Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals, is a chemical regulation adopted by the European Union in December 2006. Weyerhaeuser is affected by this regulation, as it applies to the products that we export directly into the European Union or where we sell products to non-EU customers who then use our products in their sales to the EU. Cellulose fiber (CAS #65996-61-4) is exempt from REACH per Annex IV of the regulation.
We are not aware of any fines for noncompliance with laws or regulations concerning the provision and use of our products and services.
