Contact day Webinar 'Sustainable farming for peatlands'

Business models of paludiculture

Innovative Business Models of Paludiculture "Sustainable farming for peatlands" is a European conference organised by the Interreg NWE Carbon Connects project. Carbon Connects aims to reduce the high carbon footprint of peatland soils in Northwest Europe by introducing new bio-based business models developed for sustainable land management practices. Peatland restoration is an important component of the world’s journey to net-zero carbon emissions. When healthy, peatlands are incredible carbon stores and potential carbon sinks – yet, if allowed to degrade, they threaten biodiversity, release pollutants into the environment and thwart climate change mitigation and adaptation goals everywhere.
