The Peatland Code continues to grow rapidly (see graph below). 79 projects have now registered 10,300 ha of expected peatland restoration. Of these 79 projects, 11 are validated with a total of 1,600 ha and 304,239 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emission reductions over their project lifetimes. Another 20 projects are currently undergoing validation and 3,334 Pending Issuance Units have been sold to date representing an expected reduction of 3,334 tonnes of CO2e emissions.
