|What is RTRS?|
The Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) is an international multi-stakeholder initiative founded in 2006 that promotes the use and growth of responsible production of soy, through the commitment of the main stakeholders of the soy value chain and through a global standard for responsible production.
The Association distinguishes between Participating and Observing Members. Membership is open to actors of the soy value chain and civil society who may apply to become a Participating Member in one of these three constituencies:
Only individuals or organisations such as regulatory authorities, governmental agencies, consulting and auditing firms, academia and donor organisations, which do not belong to one of the three constituencies, may request membership as Observing Members.
The RTRS's main instrument is dialogue between groups with different interests and backgrounds, in order to define common ground for action. The Round Table guarantees that each constituency has equall rights to propose specific agendas for discussion.
The Round Table on Responsible Soy Association was founded in Switzerland, while the Executive Secretariat is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
