Business services – step by step
1. We listen
Our knowledgeable and friendly team is here to listen. We like to get a detailed picture of our clients’ objectives, priorities and business challenges to ensure that we deliver compelling matches in terms of the landholder and the type, size and location of peatland project.
The next stage is for us to present the best options, with all the detail required for you to make a well-informed decision. If queries arise, we will collect the information you need, as well as potentially arranging site visits and meetings with the prospective landholders, if required.
3. The restoration starts
Thorough yet transparent documentation is agreed and signed, and the work commences. Further site visits, and the opportunity to bring in your teams for biodiversity tours and sphagnum planting can be arranged. You’ll also be provided with project updates as the work progresses.
On completion, Caledonian Climate takes care of all the necessary registrations on your behalf, ensuring that you’re able to promote the transformational work your investment has brought about. All peatland restoration projects undertaken by Caledonian Climate are validated and verified under the Peatland Code. This voluntary certification standard has been developed to reassure carbon buyers that their investment is financing responsible schemes that will result in the expected additional climate benefits.
The benefits your peatland restoration will bring
- The reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with degraded peatlands which, per hectare, can be the equivalent of running seven family cars for a year.
- The restoration of that peatland to its natural role in absorbing carbon dioxide.
- A rich enhancement of the biodiversity and landscapes of Scotland, encouraging rare nesting species such as the golden plover to flourish.
- Improved water quality, and a reduction in the associated processing costs.
- The retention and creation of local jobs to support communities across the Scottish Highlands.
- Improved flood management.
- And many more…
