million hectares of forest
individual sites operating Chain of Custody systems
Responsible Wood pioneered the development of certification standards for sustainable wood sourced from managed forests in Australia.
We manage the Responsible Wood Certification Scheme which is underpinned by two Australian Standards® – Sustainable Forest Management (AS 4708) and Chain of Custody for Forest Products (AS 4707).
As Australia’s understanding of forest ecology has increased and community attitudes have changed, forest management practices have also changed to ensure forests are conserved and managed responsibly.
