VANCOUVER, BC — Weyerhaeuser Company’s pulp mill at Kamloops, BC, is the first in the company to achieve registration to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) standard. Registration followed a thorough independent audit by the Quality Management Institute, a division of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

At the same time, Weyerhaeuser’s Forestlands operations in the Kamloops Timber Supply Area have achieved certification to the CSA’s Sustainable Forest Management system standard. This is the first CSA certification in the southern Interior of BC, covering approximately 478 000 ha of Crown forest managed by Weyerhaeuser in the Kamloops and Clearwater Forest Districts. This performance standard is complementary to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification achieved by Weyerhaeuser BC Interior forestlands in 1999.
