The RPP TOOLBOX  

Responsibly Produced Peat has developed a toolbox which contains guidelines that can provide help during your certification process. Currently the toolbox contains 4 guidlines:

  1. Mitigation measures to minimize impacts of operations on adjacent areas with High Conservation Values (areas that need to be preserved)

  2. Methodology for hydrological monitoring

  3. Methodology for estimation of GreenHouse Gas emissions (CO2 emissions).

    Background information on the methodology for GHG-emissions 

  4. Decision tree to find out if undeveloped peat fields, adjacent to existing peat extraction areas, are mires with High Conservation Values.
