Amazon Timber Frames and its company-owned manufacturing facility in Brazil, Zero Impact Brazil (ZIB), are both deeply committed to ecologically sound business practices. ZIB itself recently earned the “Top of Environmental Quality” award from the Order of Parliamentary of Brazil (OPB). OPB noted in its letter of recognition that it values and encourages the initiatives of the company in the treatment of the environment, saying that it shows great responsibility in helping to establish and maintain “harmony in nature and the biodiversity of the planet.” ZIB is now authorized to use the “Top of Environmental Quality” stamp in all of its products, services and media materials.
