With the creation, in 2003, of a specific management team, Grupo SOS began to implement a policy of Corporate Responsibility as such. At that time, this was still only an emerging concept in the business world. The Management started out with the aim of managing those non-financial matters that were of importance to the enterprise in a way that would not only minimize risks, but also, by its management, add value. With the vision of sustainable development as a factor that helps to increase the competitiveness of organizations, the said management team arranged itself into separate areas of responsibility: social, environmental and organizational (the first two had not previously existed in the organizational structure).
The strategy of Corporate Responsibility was constructed, from then on, around a Management Plan, called Feeding the Future, which studies matters important for the Organization, and which are managed in accordance with programmes.
For its definition three basic aspects are considered:
This three-dimensional analysis serves to fit the activities of the organization, including as much the internal aspects as the needs of the community.
The Management Plan for the period 2003 to 2007 was designed and developed with the principal aim of introducing into the Organization matters related to Corporate Responsibility and creating an initial framework for their management.
The Management Plan for the period 2008 to 2010, currently operative, was conceived with the purpose of strengthening the management model of Corporate Responsibility, beginning with an analysis of its weaknesses and trying to take advantage of its strengths. There has been a reconsideration of the current horizon of development of the Management Plan, which has been extended by one year, that is to say, until 2011.
