Are you a growing media producer? 

Use responsibly produced peat

Your Chain of Custody certification allows companies to use the Responsibly Produced Peat label. The RPP label will give customers the assurance that the amount of peat used in the product comes from responsible sources and excludes the risk that illegally extracted peat has been used.

Currently the criteria for the Chain of Custody are still under development and will be made available soon. Feel free to contact us to receive the latest news on this topic.

Are you a grower, retailer or user of growing media? 

Ask for RPP certified substrates

An increasing group of customers chooses products made from responsible sources. To respond to their needs you can ask your supplier for substrates containing RPP certified peat.

You can also check where RPP certified peat is produced or used in substrates. Ordering products with the RPP label means you are supporting our goal which is that the amount of peat in these products will be 100% RPP certified peat.

Is your supplier not listed? Encourage your supplier by expressing your need for RPP certified peat.

Do you want to support RPP for further development? 

Become a supporter

The RPP certification system will create a market for ‘responsibly produced peat’ and thus effectively:

  • contribute to the conservation of valuable peatlands,
  • create supply security for all users of peat or peat based products,
  • protect producers and users of peat against reputation risks.

Responsibly Produced Peat offers everyone the opportunity to actively support further development and implementation of Responsibly Produced Peat.

We hope to welcome you as a supporter of RPP certified peat!
