There are several project developers and peat partnerships that could help projects. For links to current project developers and other useful organisations see here.
Pending Issuance Units (PIU)
A PIU is effectively a ‘promise to deliver’ a Peatland Carbon Unit in the future, based on predicted emission reductions. It is not ‘guaranteed’, and cannot be used to report against UK-based emissions until verified. However, it allows companies to plan to compensate for future UK-based emissions, or make credible CSR statements in support of peatland restoration..
Peatland Carbon Units (PCU)
A PCU is a tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), which includes carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and aquatic carbon, of which the emission was avoided by a PC-verified peatland restoration project. It has been independently verified, which means that this emission reduction is guaranteed to have happened, and can be used by companies to report against UK-based emissions or to use in claims of carbon neutrality or Net Zero emissions.
