Participants of the 10th ESP World Conference donated €1240 in voluntarily greenhouse gas emission compensation. The donation goes towards peatland rewetting in the MoorFutures project Gelliner Bruch and will be used to offset 31 tonnes of CO2.
MoorFutures® were introduced in Germany as the first carbon credits from peatland rewetting. MoorFutures have been developed in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and follow the regional MoorFutures standard. The MoorFutures criteria are clearly defined, scientifically validated, transparent, and are based on the principles of the Verified Carbon Standard and the Kyoto Protocol. The quality of the MoorFutures credits is guaranteed by the relevant Ministry and related state institutions as well as regional scientific institutions/universities.
We would like to thank the participants for their contributions!
