Precious Woods Ltd. is the only forestry project to receive an "environmental license" from the State of Amazonas Secretariat for Environmental Science and Technology. The Governor recently stated: "Precious Woods has done an outstanding job, which should serve as a model for further development of timber resources in this region. This is intelligent forest management in that it takes nature into consideration." In addition, Precious Woods Ltd. is developing a model for use by a large number of other companies that do not now participate in long-term planning or inclusion of ecological principles and concepts.

Each year, ESA's Corporate Award identifies and recognizes a corporation, program, or an individual employee for achievements which incorporate sound ecological concepts and practices in planning and operational procedures. The award encourages companies to implement ecological concepts in conducting business and to enhance communication among ecologists at universities, government agencies, and in the private sector.

Past award recipients include Envirogen, Inc. for its innovative environmental technologies for remediation and pollution prevention, Tampa Electric Company with Wetlands Research, Inc., for restoration efforts, the Toyota Tapestry Program, for environmental education, and the SEMASS Partnership, for recycling efforts.
