To do so, we have used the SME Rating© to identify and prioritise the main risks of CAPARRÓS NATURE and its management..
This tool has identified, therefore, our Social Responsibility risks and their relevance, as well as analysed how CAPARRÓS NATURE identifies and manages its SR risks strategically.
The rating is given in a 6 character scale (A+, A, B+, B, C+, C). CAPARRÓS NATURE was given A+, being the A+ the best mark and C the least. A+ means that we have identified our SR risks and correctly managed the main ones according to the interests of our target groups.
