Summary

The modest changes made in compliant and conversion-free soy sourcing in 2019-2020 point to a lack of mainstream adoption of certified soy in the EU27+. Increasingly, certification is seen as one of the instruments in a smart mix of solutions such as biome wide moratoria, clean supplier approaches, and legislation. Supply chain multi-stakeholder action at the landscape level is also increasingly seen as a promising option to halt deforestation and protect valuable ecosystems. Monitoring the impact of all these different solutions is key to assess whether real progress is being made. Building on past annual reports, the 2020 European Soy monitor examines EU27+ (European, UK, Norwegian, and Swiss) imports of sustainable soy, the impacts of these imports on producing countries, and strategies to drive investment in sustainable soy globally.
