Weyerhaeuser has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. The first North American forestry and paper products company to be included; Weyerhaeuser’s economic, environmental and social performance will now be tracked on the index.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Index was launched in 1999, to keep track of the market performance of sustainability-driven companies worldwide. The annual review is based on an assessment of economic, environmental and social performance indicators, and covers corporate governance, risk management, labour practices, climate change and supply chain factors. The results are available to asset managers around the world.

Weyerhaeuser says the third-party evaluation of its practices demonstrates its commitment to sustainability.
