The sustainability efforts and achievements of three pioneering organisations and individuals have today been recognised through the presentation of Environmental Innovation Awards from the Golf Environment Organization (GEO) and their partner, global logistics company UPS.
The Dutch Golf Federation (NGF), the Scandinavian Turf and Research Foundation (STERF) and Stig Persson, the General Manager of Ljunghusens Golf Club in Sweden have all demonstrated outstanding commitment and leadership, in very different ways, in the promotion and delivery of environmental and social responsibility across the golf industry.
Speaking at the official Sustainable Golf Reception and Award Ceremony at Wentworth, on the occasion of the BMW PGA Championships, Bjorn Nordberg, Chairman of GEO’s Advisory Council said:
“GEO are absolutely delighted to be able to shine a light on the work of these three very different contributions. From the practical, on the ground delivery at Ljunghusens, to the leadership of the Dutch Golf Federation and to the vital knowledge brought forward by STERF – all three deserve recognition, and all three demonstrate how broadly these issues touch the game. They deserve all of our respect and appreciation as golf comes to accept the challenges and embrace the opportunities that sustainability presents”.
