PEATLAND ACTION SCHEME
The Scottish government has recently reopened the Peatland Action Scheme for applications in 2021.
The Peatland Action Scheme is a multi-million pound fund to help landowners, land managers and farmers to take forward peatland restoration projects and help in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss. The funding from the Peatland Action Scheme can be used to support on-the-ground activities such as ditch blocking, peat dams and re-profiling to restore damaged peatlands.
Applications to the scheme are open until the 30th September 2021.
Like woodlands, peatland restoration projects which meet the criteria for certification under the IUCN ‘Peatland Code’ allow the carbon locked in peatlands to be traded on the voluntary carbon market. The demand for carbon offsets, driven by businesses looking to hit their net-zero targets, is rapidly developing and can provide an additional revenue stream for landowners and managers of peatland sites.
If you are interested in learning more about the funding available through the Peatland Action Scheme or want to learn more about voluntary carbon markets, then do get in touch with our team who would be happy to talk you through the process. We have in-house expertise in forestry and environmental land management and can help in undertaking a wider strategic assessment of your estate or holding to identify your natural capital assets and advise on their management and potential market opportunities.
