Carbon Connects wins Interreg capitalisation call

The Carbon Connects project partners have recently won the second Interreg NWE ‘capitalisation’ call for projects. This success implies an extension of budget and project until December 2023, with new activities to maximise the impact of the project. The new activities will start in the autumn of 2021. They will actively integrate peatland market players into the project, such as industry and investors interested in purchasing peatland products and ecosystem services. The aim will be to activate an effective market ecosystem for peatlands to ensure the long-term financial viability of sustainable management practices, promoting their adoption in North West Europe and further reducing greenhouse gas emissions from degraded peatlands.

This call for capitalisation is also an opportunity to welcome new partners to the Carbon Connects consortium:
