This study reports on the extent to which sustainability initiatives in the cocoa, coffee and soy value chains
have been scaled up by companies. We have investigated how the private sector can be further stimulated to
engage in, sustain and increase their involvement in actions to increase the sustainability of commodity
chains with links to the Netherlands. The report analyses the motives for companies to join sustainability
initiatives and their reasons for not engaging. It concludes with several recommendations on how
government and value-chain stakeholders could further stimulate the scaling up of sustainability initiatives.
