About the Soft
Commodities Forum

The complexity of soy supply chains means that no single business can tackle deforestation alone. Collaboration helps to move the entire value chain forward, establishing and applying standards and solutions. In 2018, the Soft Commodities Forum (SCF) was established to enable this collaboration making it the only forum in which member companies have agreed to find collective solutions to common sustainability challenges, bridging global goals with local realities.

Deforestation is a leading driver of climate change. To address it, we will need to develop and test solutions at farm and landscape level, ultimately bringing tangible benefits to those who live there. In this section of the report, learn more about what working in landscapes means for the SCF.
