This report to BEIS is on the development and implement a new method for reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from peatlands in the UK's emissions inventory. The work builds on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 2013 Wetlands Supplement, by providing UK-specific estimates of emissions from peat land. It collates consistent spatial information on peat extent and condition for England Northern Ireland, Scotland Wales, the Isle of Man and the Falkland Islands. These data were used to assess the overall extent and condition of UK peatlands; to estimate change in emissions over the period from 1990 to 2013; to implement the first UK-wide inventory of peatland GHG emissions over this period; and to project future peat-derived GHG emissions.
