RTRS: checking sustainability throughout the chain
The Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) is an international multi-stakeholder initiative founded in 2006 that promotes the use and growth of responsible soy production through the commitment of the main stakeholders of the soy value chain and through a global standard for responsible production.
The RTRS standard for responsible soy production includes requirements to halt conversion of areas with high conservation value, to promote best management practices, to ensure fair working conditions, and to respect land tenure claims. A certification scheme for production and one for Chain of Custody have been implemented.
