Primary Climate Goal
Weyerhaeuser Company's target annual Scope 1 + 2 emissions for 2030 should be equal to 592 Kt = 42% * 1,020 Kt, according to the company's stated climate goal.
In order to achieve this goal, Weyerhaeuser Company would need to reduce its emissions at least by -43 Kt per annum over the period from 2021 to 2030:
-43 Kt = ( 592 Kt - 1,020 Kt ) / (2030 - 2020)
This translates into a -4.2% reduction in 2021.
The projected range shown on the chart is based on the Exerica's algorithm which takes account of both the company's stated goal and its past performance.

Weyerhaeuser Company reported Total CO2e Emissions - Location-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 1,020 Kt (-50 /-4.7% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity plunged to 135 t (-28 /-17.1% y-o-y).
Weyerhaeuser Company reported Scope 3 emissions for the the twelve months ending31 December 2020 at 6,100
The company is committed to reducing Scope 1 + 2 by 42% by 2030 from a base year 2020, which translates into the estimated reduction of -43 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2030. This science-based target is aligned with Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
