WWF helped establish the Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) in 2004. Through the RTRS, environmental and social NGOs, soy producers and traders, finance institutions, manufacturers, retailers and companies in the feed industry collaborate toward responsible soy production and use, and to improve key issues like worker’s rights and conversion. WWF has been an active member of the RTRS Board since its establishment, strengthening the RTRS standard to forbid all conversion of natural habitat after 2016.
Today, WWF´s efforts to increase demand for RTRS soy continue through the global zero-conversion platforms and commitments (above) and international agreements like the New York Declaration
and the Sustainable Development Goals/ Agenda 2030. WWF is a member of the RTRS Collaborative Soy Initiative Steering Group which aim is to create a broad platform of credible soy initiatives.
