The Roundtable on Responsible Soy Association, the internationally recognised organisation promoting responsible production, processing and trading of soy, announces its final line-up of speakers for the RT12 / Zero Deforestation: Transparency and Scale conference taking place in Lille, France, 31 May – 1 June 2017.

Speakers include representatives from Nestle, World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Proterra, European Commission, Imperial College London and many other key industry partners and academics.

This year’s 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).
