The audit report highlighted the following points as positive aspects of the organization: the investment in innovation; R&D projects; Sustainability; human resources development through the Horizontes (Horizons) Programme; our ongoing projects, i.e., RKPI+ and RMind+; the continuous investment in the repair of infrastructures and upgrade of information systems and equipment. In addition, the active engagement of our senior management and all members of staff was praised during this process.

The auditors were pleased with the overall results of the work developed at Riopele, and considered that the goals have been complied with, not identifying any situations that had a negative impact.
