Aware of its role in environmental preservation, the company understands the importance of sustainability, considering socio-economic and ecological factors so that progress can co-exist harmoniously.

Acting in a region where agribusiness is the engine of the economy, RISA argues that sustainable development must meet the needs of the citizens without compromising the quality of life of future generations. To this end, the company is always providing information and fostering practices that prioritize the enjoyment of the environment as a source of wealth, seeking access to environmental education for all.

On the conflicts between economic growth and the depletion of environmental resources, RISA is available to discuss proposals with groups of interested institutions and organisations to complete projects in favour of sustainability and of other interests related to environmental preservation.

In search of better outcomes, RISA has an excellent relationship with its employees and maintains a friendly relationship with their customers and suppliers. Since entrepreneurs began understanding the context of globalization and changes in industries, the company became concerned with the expectations of the citizens, consumers, public authorities and investors.

Each of the farms has a team of professionals qualified to carry out the most varied work in this area, taking care of the earth so that it gives its best. The company acts based on the idea that space and time influences income variability of crops.
