Peatland Code Validation and Verification Service
With over 80% of UK peatlands in a degraded state, there is an urgent need to address this decline. Our expert teams can now offer land managers, owners and custodians a validation and verification service, as part of the Peatland Code.
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.
