|How can companies buy or support RTRS certified soy?|
Soy products reach consumers in many different ways. In order to enable all companies that use soy products to quickly begin buying and/or supporting responsible soy, the RTRS has developed four supply chain modules through which they can participate:
Additionally a CREDIT TRADING PLATFORM was created. To enable any soy grower or buyer to support responsible soy, even those who do not have access to segregated or mass balance supply chains, a trading platform for ‘responsible soy production credits’ has been set up. Companies that buy soy on the regular market can now also purchase ‘responsible soy production credits’ directly from soybean growers, with one credit equaling the responsible production of one metric ton of soybeans. After having bought credits, a company can publicly claim to have supported the responsible production of equivalent volumes of soy products. The RTRS credit trading platform is called ´Credit Trading Platform’ and resembles well established ‘green energy’ and ‘sustainable palm oil’ credit trading systems.
