NEX Group commits to UK's first ever Peatland Code project

Posted on Monday, April, 30th, 2018

NEX Group recently re-affirmed its commitment to UK landscape projects as part of its ongoing carbon mitigation programme, and as a part of this programme became the first business to support a peatland restoration project certified under the new Peatland Code. The project, at Dryhope in the Scottish Borders, entails the restoration and protection of 77 hectares of degraded peatbog. Work was completed in November 2017 and will prevent the release of around 6,500 tonnes CO2 into the atmosphere. As part of mitigating its 2016/17 carbon footprint NEX also supported the planting of over 70,000 trees at Woodland Carbon Code certified projects in England, Scotland and Wales.
