This year EKE supports The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation by funding Hiilipörssi’s work for restoring peatlands in Finland.
Peatland is the most effective carbon stock of the nature. Blocking the carbon leakage by restoring peatlands can be the most cost-effective single way in the global scale to mitigate climate change. While removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the restoring of peatlands recovers the biodiversity of the nature and reduces the run-off of harmful waters into the Baltic Sea. This is what we want to support.
