3 = Sustainable soybean certification programs in which ADM actively participates in South America.
- We were the first company in South America to achieve the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) for soybeans by working with growers in both Brazil and Paraguay to successfully complete exacting third-party audits. The certification has allowed ADM to supply the European market with certified-sustainable soy that meets the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive (RED) requirements.
In addition, in December 2014, ADM began selling soybean meal produced from ISCC-certified sustainable soybeans to European customers.
- ADM was also the first company in South America to be certified jointly by 2BSvs (the Biomass, Biofuel and Sustainability voluntary program), a second program developed to help soybean suppliers demonstrate compliance with RED sustainability criteria.
- We are a member of the Round Table on Responsible Soy, whose certification system assures that soybeans have been originated from a process that the organization describes as “environmentally correct, socially adequate and economically viable.”
In addition, we are working with the global civil society group Solidaridad to develop a certification-training program for growers in Brazil and Paraguay. Our participation in the organization’s Rural Horizons system is designed to support continual improvement of agricultural production and to strengthen partnerships throughout the supply chain.
