These new models – involving RTRS non-Paraquat and non-GMO credits as well as a new Mass Balance option - will be launched between July 2018 and April 2019. The models form part of RTRS’s ongoing ‘commitment to continuous improvement’ that involves offering options to the market that cater for existing demands.

The launch of the new models is to be rolled out in a staggered approach in order to provide further tools for the responsible soy market and help facilitate conditions that increase the size and impact of sustainable soy on a global basis. RTRS expects a significant uptake of the new products over the next few years as the market take new steps to achieve further responsible food chain transparency.
