Carbon Stock Market is an innovation of the Finnish Association for Nature Conversation. It is a marketplace where anyone can pay for restoring drained peatland/bog and at the same time compensate for his/her carbon footprint. One hectare costs 800 € and it is about 1/5 of the footprint of the average Finnish person. 15 % of the money is spent on local nature activity and art. This restoration also increases the biodiversity and improves the water quality of lakes and rivers. Carbon Stock Market starts on the 25.5.2018 and is funded by the Kone Foundation.
