Our 2021 Sustainability Report tells the story of a pivotal year of growth for West Fraser. We worked to embed a shared culture of sustainability and credible elevation of environmental and social considerations in our business decisions across a newly formed organization. It was a year in which we learned from new colleagues, established new goals, and developed and implemented strategies to achieve our sustainability ambitions. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on climate action, our people, our communities, safety performance, meaningful Indigenous relations and sustainable forest management.
Message from Our President & CEO
Sustainability has been a central principle at West Fraser since our company was founded over 65 years ago. Over the years our approach has continued to evolve to reflect who we are and what we value as an organization. We are proud of our past, but even more excited about our future. West Fraser is a global leader in renewable, wood building products with operations in North America, the United Kingdom and Europe. We take pride in the fact that the products we produce are responsibly sourced, third-party certified, and represent the right choice for consumers who care about the planet and want to be part of the climate change solution. This report outlines our approach to embedding sustainability throughout our business and within our strategic decisionmaking processes.
