The night of last Wednesday in April (26) marked the recognition of the BVRio Institute (iBVRio) for its performance in the socio-environmental sector. Brazilian Association of Environmental Public Attorneys (ABRAMPA) committed the award “Troféu Entidade Amiga” at a ceremony held in São Paulo, during the 17th Brazilian Conference of the Environmental Public Attorneys.
Since 2011, iBVRio has been supporting its mission to create market mechanisms to facilitate compliance with Brazilian environmental laws. This recognition, besides celebrating six years of this work, shows that the projects and services developed by the institution are modifying the socio-environmental sector. The Responsible Timber Exchange is the latest initiative created by the institute in partnership with the BVRio Environmental Exchange (www.bvrio.com).
The Troféu Entidade Amiga aims to promote, disseminate, and perfect the efficient use of natural resources, the preservation of the environment, best practices, and the support to sustainable socio-environmental projects. The awarding took place at a special moment in Abramba’s history, as it celebrates 20 years of fight for the preservation of the environment.
