The WWF Soy Scorecard assesses the performance of 133 European companies on their use of responsible soy in the animal feed used to produce their meat, farmed fish, eggs, dairy and other animal products.
WWF defines responsible soy as soy sourced from companies certified to the Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) or ProTerra schemes.
Companies have been assessed for actions taken in calendar year 2015, while the Scorecard was published in 2016.

In recent years Waitrose has made great progress towards establishing fully responsible and traceable soy supply chains. It is a supporter of the Amazon Soy Moratorium and, as a member of the Retailers' Soy Group, it is represented on the RTRS Executive Board. Waitrose has also invested in research on responsible alternatives to soy.
