Nominations called for Richard Stanton Award

Friday 6 May 2022

Responsible Wood is calling for nominations in this year’s coveted Richard Stanton Memorial Award for Excellence in Forest Management or Chain of Custody. This is the seventh year of the award which pays tribute to a man who devoted his life to sustainable forest management in Australia and internationally.

Richard Stanton was CEO and national secretary of Australian Forestry Standard Ltd (now Responsible Wood) and had a number of key roles with the Australian Plantation Products and Paper Industry Council, the Australian Paper Industry Council, Plantation Timber Association of Australia, National Association of Forest Industries, and State Forests NSW.

Nominations for the award are open to individuals who have contributed significantly to either forest management or chain-of-custody certification under the Responsible Wood certification program. The award nominees will be those who have contributed to sustainable forest management under AS / NZS 4708 or chain of custody under AS 4707.

The award is open to, but not restricted to, forest owners and managers; chain-of-custody certificate holders; staff of certification bodies; forest scientists and researchers; and designers of products manufactured from sustainable timber.

The award also carries an AU$2000 bursary prize. Criteria for the award along with a list of previous winners can be found on the Responsible Wood website. The selection of the successful applicant will be made by the Responsible Wood Marketing Committee and announced later this year.

Nominations for the award close at 5pm (AEST) Friday 2 September 2022. Nominations can be forwarded to:
