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).

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

We advocate insurer security over "cheap" insurance.

We provide advice and recommendations, not a postage service from the insurer.

If you would like to treat your insurance as important financial security for your business and not as an "unnecessary evil" then Premier would like to talk to you.

Premier is part of the AUB Group Ltd insurance conglomerate.
