As part of its sustainability agenda Going Circular, ForFarmers is helping its farming customers and supply chain partners to reduce their carbon footprint. By using certified soy that does not include the environmental impact of land use change (LUC) through deforestation or conversion, ForFarmers contributes to a significant lower carbon footprint on-farm. This approach has been applied on a large scale in the Netherlands, in which ForFarmers worked with partners to develop an innovative approach by purchasing Area Mass Balance soy certificates from Brazilian farmers, who could prove via satellite imagery that their land had not been cleared for at least 20 years. ForFarmers is extending this approach to other parts of their customer base.
