We are witnessing a substantial increase in the demand for RTRS Credits, supporting responsible soy production as well as increases in Chain of Custody certification, which further strengthens the growing uptake of RTRS certified soy via Mass Balance. This shows that several players in the supply chain are progressively recognizing the solution that certification offers.
RTRS certification goes beyond zero conversion and zero deforestation soy. It appears, however, that sometimes this added value is not seen by all or is considered to be less relevant. Global sustainable supply chains are still a challenge: even if certification were to expand exponentially, would it still respond to the need for scale?
In our third webinar, our objectives are threefold: we will present cases of RTRS sustainable supply chains joining forces to demonstrate the tangible impact of certification; we will show how RTRS Credits support responsible soy production and/or RTRS certified soy via Mass Balance in the context of changing European regulation, market requirements, and investor demands; and we will explore the way we can enhance the value of certification across the soy value chain.
