To protect peatlands, what is needed from science, policy and the private sector?
Climate-conscious businesses are always looking for innovative ways to support carbon removal, while supporting local communities and helping biodiversity flourish. Peatlands have long been exploited for human benefit, but are now starting to be recognised for their amazing biodiversity and carbon-sink properties.
Saving our peatlands
