Ghent March 2020 – The potting soil supplier Agaris has been awarded with the Chain Custody RPP certificate. A requirement to achieve certification is that the company extracts all its peat from peatlands that have been certified by the independent Foundation Responsibly Produced Peat (RPP). This ensures that this precious raw material is harvested in a responsible and sustainable manner. RPP is also supported by various environmental organisations to restore valuable natural areas.

By pursuing RPP certification, Agaris produces peat in a responsible manner. RPP assures that peat is not coming from peatlands with high conservation value, that the surrounding areas are not affected by peat extraction and that the bogs are rehabilitated to their natural state after extraction.
