The IUCN’s Peatland Code is a voluntary, quality standard for UK peatland restoration projects which generates independently verified carbon units.

The code was introduced to encourage private funding to support these restoration projects. The certification allows project developers to sell carbon credits from peatland restoration projects, providing assurance and clarity for business and investors through independent validation and verification.
