Responsible Wood took centre stage in the latest Tasmanian Timber Webinar Series.

Consumers and professionals want to be assured that timber products are coming from responsibly and sustainably managed forests.

But with multiple certification schemes available in Australia, how do you know what the best environmental choice is?

In the latest Tasmanian Timber Webinar Series, now available for download, Responsible Wood’s Jason Ross presented the case for forest certification to an audience of interested design professionals.

“Awareness of forest certification specifically amongst architects, engineers and end-users of timber based products remains low.”

“What this campaign strives to do is to improve the visibility and educate consumers about forest certification, to take Responsible Wood to a broader audience,” Mr Ross said.

As Australia’s largest and most diverse forest certification scheme, more than 11.2 million hectares of Australian forests is covered by the Responsible Wood certification scheme, with 250 businesses carrying the Responsible Wood ‘trust mark.’

Many of these businesses are Tasmanian, uniquely and proudly so.
