Schouten buys RTRS non-GMO credits

As of 2018, Schouten is buying soy with RTRS non-GMO credits.

RTRS Soy Credits come with huge advantages. Acquiring such credits means making a direct impact on the agro-ecological environment and, at the same time, recognizing producers who have chosen to adopt the RTRS certification. By acquiring RTRS credits, Schouten displays an interest in and commitment to encouraging a form of production that is environmentally appropriate, socially adequate and economically feasible.

Thus, according to the RTRS Standard, one ton of certified soy is equivalent to one credit for responsible soy production, and this credit can be exchanged through the RTRS Credit Trading Platform. Once they have acquired credits, businesses or organizations may publicize claims of having supported responsible production through its commitment to the purchase of RTRS Credits. They may also increase the visibility of their support, communicating this directly to customers and end consumers by using the RTRS Credit Logo label on their packaging.
