Peatland Code projects are hosted on the UK Land Carbon Registry alongside Woodland Carbon Code projects.
The UK Peatland Code Registry is the Peatland Code’s electronic database that stores and publicly displays data about the status of Projects and ownership and use of Carbon Units. Managed by IHS Markit, it records transactions and provides a public and transparent picture of UK-based Carbon Units. All Peatland Code Projects and Carbon Units must be recorded on the Peatland Code Registry.
