Reliable alternatives are not yet sufficient available to replace peat. If we want to feed the world, we are yet reliable of peat. By setting standards for responsible production, peat will stay available for application in horticulture in Europe.

Responsibly Produced Peat in process to grant certificate
During a period of 6 weeks, the Committee of Experts offers parties concerned the opportunity to provide comment on the intended advise for certification.
This intended decision is based on the fact that the companies with these specific locations meet the requirements of the actual RPP-certification scheme. The fulfilment of the criteria is checked on site by an independent inspector (ECAS) at location.
