Responsible Wood Sustainability
Ensuring Australian forest sustainability through certification-based compliance
Responsible Wood (formerly the Australian Forestry Standard) is Australia’s leading forest certification scheme. Responsible Wood pioneered the development of certification standards for sustainable wood sourced from managed forests in Australia. Responsible Wood is the National Governing Body for PEFC in Australia. We work throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that forest-based products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Responsible Wood are committed to protecting and promoting Australia’s unique environments with standards that ensure a forest industry that is environmentally, socially, culturally and commercially sustainable. We pioneered the development of certification standards for wood and wood products sourced from sustainably managed forests in Australia. Our standards provide guidance and accountability for forest managers, manufacturers and suppliers.
