The Soy Toolkit is designed to support companies in the responsible sourcing of soy.  It is an accessible guide to the many initiatives which aim to decouple soy production and trading from deforestation, conversion of native vegetation and human rights violations. 

It is structured around each of the five key elements of the soy responsible sourcing process:

01 ASSESS AND PLAN IMPLEMENTATION 

02 Understand Supply chain Risks 

03 ENGAGE SUPPLIERS 

04 ESTABLISH A Purchase control system 

05 Monitor, VERIFY AND REPORT


There are also cross-cutting briefings and discussion papers which aim to contribute to issues companies are dealing with when implementing their responsible sourcing policy commitments. We welcome feedback on all of the material, which will inform future versions as the thinking develops.

For each element, companies can:

  • Learn the steps needed for implementation

  • Discover which tools are available for each step

  • Learn how to choose which tool is right for them

  • See examples of how other companies performed each step
