Weyerhaeuser: Terminate Lease With Energix!

By leasing over 1000 acres of Virginia land to Energix, a U.N.-designated human rights violator that has constructed a solar facility on the Israeli-occupied West Bank and wind energy turbines in Golan Heights, Weyerhaeuser has violated its own Code of Ethics.

Although the Code claims to respect indigenous cultures and legally recognized rights and status, Weyerhaeuser, by doing business with Energix, actually disrespects the indigenous people of Palestine.

Take action today! Join our campaign to hold Weyerhaeuser accountable until it terminates its lease with Energix.

Take Action Now!

A May 2019 letter from Weyerhaeuser Senior Manager Anthony Chavez to Campbell County officials authorized Energix to file a Special Use Permit (SUP) application for a 60MW solar facility. Contact Mr. Chavez!

    Weyerhaeuser states that their human rights policy is guided by the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, its deal with Energix, a U.N. designated human rights violator, contradicts this claim.

    Energix is #32 on UN List

    Logo of the UN Office of the High Commisioner for Human Rights

    The United Nations’ Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), in February 2020, listed Energix Renewable Energies as a Category G company because of its "use of natural resources, in particular water and land, for business purposes" in occupied Palestinian territories. Although Energix sold its Meitarim solar facility in 2021, it is still in ongoing clashes with communities in the Golan Heights because of its plans to expand wind energy plants. Energix uses Israeli courts and Israeli military police against Syrian Druze populations opposed to the usurpation of land, wind, and cultural resources.

    Energix SUP Application

    Parcels from Weyerhaeuser for solar site

    Energix submitted a Special Use Permit application packet in 2019. "Caden Energix Gladys LLC proposed to construct, operate, and maintain a 60 MW PV solar energy facility on approximately 660 acres of the property. The solar facility would contain approximately 181,600 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to power 12,000 single family homes." Weyerhaeuser is leasing this land to Energix.

    The Campbell County Board of Supervisors approved the Energix SUP in November 2019.
