On the 20th of April 2021, Natural England published a new report reviewing carbon storage and uptake by natural habitats in England. Covering the full range of habitats, the report gives an overview of which types store the most carbon alongside the main sources of emissions and best methods to promote carbon sequestration.
Some habitats that were highlighted include peatland, woodland, saltmarsh and semi-natural grasslands. These habitats will play a vital role in the UK’s goal of net zero carbon by 2050. The report also highlighted that maintaining agricultural productivity is vital, with scope for targeting different land uses depending on the benefits they provide.
