Delivering peace of mind and market access through illegal logging due diligence, timber recycling and product environmental verification.

Our Services

Circular Economy & Recycling

We assist industry access markets for waste timber and wood products as well as compliance with waste and recycling regulations.  We also provide wood product manufacturers and suppliers with strategic and practical advice based on the circular economy and product stewardship principles.

Illegal Logging Regulation

We help importers of timber, paper and wood furniture to reduce the risk of non-compliance with the due diligence requirements of the Australian Illegal Logging Prohibition Act and associated Regulations.

Product Environmental Verification

We help you access more markets ahead of your competition via environmental product declarations and sustainability building rating schemes 

We have one way of working: your way!

We’ll work within your resourcing and budgetary framework. Talk to us about the options, from a one-off consultation or ad-hoc support, to an ongoing contract.

We work with clients across Australia – onsite, offsite and remotely. To find out more about what we do get in touch to arrange your first consultation.
