Goals of responsibly produced peat
Assure the availability of peat, from responsible sources, where peat is essential for growing media
At this moment some alternatives are available, but it is very difficult to find environmental friendly alternatives with the same valuable properties. Reliable alternatives are not yet available in sufficient quantities to replace peat. If we want to feed the world, we are yet reliable of peat. By setting standards for responsible production, peat can be used where essential for application in horticulture in Europe.
