Corporate Responsibility Magazine (formerly CRO Magazine) named Weyerhaeuser Company to its annual list of 100 Best Corporate Citizens. Weyerhaeuser was ranked No. 67 overall.

“Weyerhaeuser is committed to responsibly meeting the needs of its multiple stakeholders—including investors, customers, employees and the communities where we operate,” said Dan Fulton, Weyerhaeuser president and CEO. “This ranking affirms Weyerhaeuser’s leadership in sustainability, environmental stewardship, ethical business conduct, employee safety, community relations and more as we seek to fulfill our mission of improving lives and the planet we share by building homes and making products that come from one of the world’s most renewable resources: trees and forests.”

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List is based on over 360 data points of publicly-available information in seven categories, including environment, climate change, human rights, philanthropy, employee relations, financial performance and governance. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens are selected from among the large-cap Russell 1000 companies, based on data provided by IW Financial, a Portland, Maine-based financial research firm that specializes in evaluating the environmental, social and governance performance of companies.

The 100 Best List was first published in 1999 in Business Ethics Magazine, and has been managed by CRO and Corporate Responsibility Magazine since 2007.
