The ProTerra Standard version 4.0 strengthen its focus on all the important challenges faced by companies in the food and feed supply chains, particularly those dependent on agricultural commodities such as soy:

  • Protection of the Amazon, Cerrado, Chaco biomes, and any other High Conservation Value Areas
  • Protection of the rights of communities, indigenous people, and smallholders
  • Promotion of good labour practices such as workplace safety, equal opportunities, and particular attention to preventing child and forced labour
  • Promotion of good agricultural practices, particularly regarding soil fertility, water management and continuous efforts to reduce the use of fertilisers and pesticides
  • Protection of biodiversity, particularly through rigorous Non-GMO requirements (<0.1% to adventitious 0.9% GMO maximum)

Furthermore, the ProTerra Standard version 4.0 has been benchmarked against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to facilitate the work of companies in identifying their contribution to the SDGs.

The ProTerra Standard version 3.0 remains applicable until 1st January 2020, by when all ProTerra audits will be conducted against ProTerra Standard version 4.0
