Peatlands and Climate Change

Peatlands are the largest natural terrestrial carbon store; the area covered by near natural peatland worldwide (>3 million km2) sequesters 0.37 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) a year – storing more carbon than all other vegetation types in the world combined.

Damaged peatlands are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, annually releasing almost 6% of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Peatland restoration can therefore bring significant emissions reductions.

Countries are encouraged to include peatland restoration in their commitments to global international agreements, including the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Here at MLGM we support the maintenence and restoration of peatlands around the world.
