15 business and investor organisations and 80 CEOs urged EU decision-makers to protect nature.

We bought the topic of peatlands to 50 business and investor organisations not yet working on the topic.

We shared a new messaging guide on peatland with over 130 individuals from civil society organisations.

Our co-designed social media campaign on the topic of peatland protection reached 5 million citizens across Germany.

Our project in a nutshell

2023 was a key year for peatland restoration in Europe. The much anticipated Nature Restoration Law (NRL) – landmark legislation setting legally binding targets to restore degraded ecosystems – was making its way through the European Union’s legislative process. Meanwhile, in Germany, a Natural Climate Protection action programme was being launched in which rewetting peatland played a major role. We seized this moment to build much-needed momentum for peatland restoration.

Our goal was to “catalyse enabling conditions for ambitious policy change in the EU to protect and restore peatlands.” We aimed to do this by:

“Climate Catalyst has brought a huge contribution to our campaign for a strong EU restoration law. They have injected a coordinated package of financial and human resources, know-how and contacts that has really powered up our work. They also bring drive, focus and systematic thinking which are very much welcome.”
