The Round Table on Responsible Soy Association is an international multi-stakeholder initiative that
brings together those concerned with the impacts of the soy economy. It’s working to defne what
is responsibly-grown and processed soy and to promote the best available practices to mitigate
negative impacts throughout the value chain. The RTRS’s main instrument is dialogue between
groups with different interests and backgrounds, in order to defne common ground for action.
The Principles and Criteria - RTRS Standard Version 1.0 was adopted in June 2010
