Company to Enhance UNEP Conservation Efforts with Carbon Measurement Systems

CANBERRA, Nov. 10, 2020 — The Mullion Group, an Australian software company focused on environmental tracking, today announced that they have joined the Global Peatlands Initiative as a new member.

Founded by the UNEP at the 2016 Conference of the Parties, the Global Peatlands Initiative strives to improve peatland conservation and manage the significant carbon stored within them.

The Mullion Group will be contributing to the initiative with its carbon measurement systems expertise alongside other members such as the World Wildlife Fund and the European Space Agency. With its new carbon intelligence software, The Mullion Group will be a valuable asset to the growing organization.  

Peat develops in diverse biomes, spanning from the tropics to higher northern latitudes, where water-logged conditions slow the decomposition of organic matter and build up over long periods of time. Recent estimates indicate that almost 3% of the earth’s land surface is peatland, resulting in urgency for conservation in order to minimize damage from escaping carbon emissions due to climate change.

“Peatland is a metaphorical gold mine when it comes to carbon capture and storage, and it is crucial that we are able to monitor and conserve these areas in order to keep insurmountable amounts of carbon from escaping,” said Chief Strategy Officer of The Mullion Group, Natalie Hughes. 

“We are excited and motivated to be a dedicated contributor to the Global Peatlands Initiative, and believe that we can be a valuable asset to the organization.”

About the Global Peatlands Initiative (GPI)

The Global Peatlands Initiative is an international partnership launched at the UNFCCC COP in Marrakech, Morocco, in late 2016. Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), our goal is to protect and conserve peatlands as the world’s largest terrestrial organic carbon stock and to prevent it from being emitted into the atmosphere.

 

About FLINTpro

FLINTpro, developed by The Mullion Group, is a first-in-kind system that integrates a broad range of data and innovative earth-sensing technologies to measure and manage carbon gains and losses — GHG sinks and sources — across all land uses including forests, agriculture, pastures, coastal areas, and soils. Trusted by leaders in finance, government, and business, their team of experts empowers decision-makers to see the opportunities in doing business in a nature-positive way.
