The paper identifies four key barriers to mainstreaming responsible soy production, presents a roadmap to overcome them and a framework of actions to assist companies in developing an effective response strategy.

A Roadmap to Responsible Soy highlights that only 2 to 3% of soy production is currently certified as responsibly-produced. Responsible production in soy lags far behind other commodities such as palm oil, cocoa and coffee. This brings reputational and commercial risks to end users including manufacturers of food, animal feed and biofuel. Global NGO and activist campaigns have targeted palm oil in recent years, but attention is also being paid to soy.

A Roadmap to Responsible Soy is published in collaboration with the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), WWF, FMO (the Netherlands Development Finance Company) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
