Peatland Code (Private Finance)

The Peatland Code is a voluntary standard for UK peatland projects wishing to market the climate benefit of restoration and provides a mechanism to support private finance for peatland restoration and long-term management of damaged peatland.

You can find out more on the IUCN Peatland Code Website.
