2020 LU&F Briefing Paper
This paper is available from the 2020 Group website and it was prepared to provide a briefing about the value of peatland restoration to business leaders who might wish to consider investing in peatlands. Initially this would be for Corporate Social Responsibility purposes but in due course this might develop as a compliance market is established.
Support for Peatland Events
Under the GSPRP, and in support of the development of the National Peatlands Plan, a series of events are planned across Scotland. Assistance with staging these events will be sought from organisations and experienced contractors familiar with an area of Scotland. If anyone is interested in helping to run these events, and perhaps more besides, please contact the Director.
