How does it work?

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.

The Resilience Rating system also has the potential to give insurers, banks and investors a framework for financing and rewarding bushfire resilience adaptations.
