15/05/2017: Big brands tackle deforestation


 Mcdonalds, Nestle, FEFAC, Bel Group, Mars Petcare are some of the big groups meeting to discuss issues around deforestation at the RT12 Conference.


 Some of the biggest brands in the food industry will speak at the RT12 / Zero Deforestation: Transparency and Scale conference taking place in Lille, France, 31st May – 1st June 2017.

 The RT12 conference is hosted by The Roundtable on Responsible Soy Association the internationally recognised organisation promoting responsible production, processing and trading of soy.

 Marcello Visconti, RTRS Executive Director says, “We believe that it is crucially important to bring together actors in the soy sector from across the globe to discuss, face-to-face, issues that are important to us. We have a host of fantastic thought leaders speaking at RT12 addressing three key themes for the future of soy: zero deforestation, supply chain transparency and scaling up.”

 The event, which will attract 250 stakeholders from the global supply chain, will explore practical solutions to achieving continuous improvement in sustainable soy through dialogue with thought leaders within the sector.

 The two-day event will focus on deforestation (monitoring strategies and tools; risk analysis; solutions for bridging the gap between legal compliance and zero deforestation), supply chain transparency (challenges and solutions for sustainable physical supply chains; transparency tools; stories from the field) and issues around the scaling up of production (jurisdictional approaches; finance and government; synergies between soy standards).

 RTRS’s latest enhancement of its Soy Production Standard (version 3.0) has created the world’s first Zero Deforestation multi-stakeholder certification standard. It is the only multi-stakeholder certification scheme that guarantees zero deforestation in responsible soy production.
