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. 

Responsible Wood manage the Responsible Wood Certification Scheme, underpinned by two Australian Standards, and the New Zealand Forest Management Scheme on behalf of the New Zealand Forest Certification Association (NZFCA). Both certification schemes are endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), the global authority on sustainable forest management. 

Responsible Wood is a not-for-profit standards development organisation.
