Climate change: CO2 emissions rising for first time in four years

Peatlands are part of the solution as nations struggle to control their carbon emissions. Damaged peatlands around the world emit 6% of the annual carbon dioxide total. Sustainable management and restoration of peatlands is a cost effective natural way to reduce global carbon emissions that provides other benefits such as floor amelioration, increased water quality and quantity and the protection of biodiversity.

Pennine PeatLIFE Webinar: UK Peatland Code Progress

Presented by Jenny Sharman from Pennine PeatLIFE, this webinar will provide a brief introduction to the UK Peatland Code – a voluntary standard for UK peatland projects looking to market the ecosystem benefits of restoration. It will focus on the Pennine PeatLIFE experience in the initial stages of registering and validating two of its Yorkshire Dales sites. This has resulted in the successful registration of one of England’s first ever Peatland Code sites.
