% of homes in high risk areas are not resilient to bushfire

Our world-first Bushfire Resilience Star Rating project measures the resilience of property and provides tailored adaptation actions.

Developed by Australia’s leading bushfire experts and supported by the Australian federal government, IAG, NAB and BlueScope Steel, the Bushfire Resilience Star Rating system takes a best-practice and holistic approach to bushfire resilience that covers building, landscaping and ongoing maintenance.

Our innovation will empower everyday Australians with the risk information they need to make their homes more resilient to bushfire.
