The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA) approach to responsible mining is to certify social and environmental performance at mine sites globally using an internationally recognised standard that has been developed in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders.
IRMA’s global standard, developed over ten years and in consultation with more than 100 companies and organisations, covers all mined materials, except for energy fuels, for all sizes of industrial mines and in all parts of the world.
Round Table on Responsible Soy Association (RTRS) is a global non-for-profit organization promoting the growth of production, trade, and use of responsible soy through cooperation with players in the soy value chain, from production to consumption, in an open multi-stakeholder dialogue.
RTRS´ mission addresses the most pressing problems facing the soy sector today, hence, and among other approaches, RTRS works with affected stakeholders in an inclusive, consensus-based process to set the standards for Responsible Soy Production and Chain of Custody. Particularly the RTRS Standard for Responsible Soy Production assures sustainability in soy production ensuring that RTRS certified soy not only meets the highest environmental criteria but also a wide-reaching set of social and labour requirements. Additionally, traceability of sustainable soy and soy products is assured through the RTRS Chain of Custody standard.
