Abstract How sustainability schemes promote sustainability and compete amongst themselves is not static but in continuous movement. This is illustrated with the development history of sustainability schemes in soy. Their dynamics are defined by the importance of certified product for market access and by partnerships and stakeholder negotiations in global and local context. Sustainability can be best served if such processes are understood and managed. Transparent dialogue and intensive interaction facilitates learning and benchmarking towards sustainability. The Dutch government can play an important facilitating role.
