Sustainable Golf Events: the Index

Sustainable Golf Index benchmarks professional golf events
For the second year running, the Sustainable Golf Index is benchmarking professional golf events on sustainability. With 82 events from the European Tour, Ladies Tour, Senior Tour and Challenge Tour, the Sustainable Golf Index is the most in-depth analysis on sustainability at events.

The Sustainable Golf Index allows tournaments, and their sponsors, to benchmark their progress in sustainability. Many of the companies sponsoring professional golf tournaments are faced with increasing demands on their reputation and sustainability. Between-us believes that these standards should also be maintained at events that companies associate their name with, providing consistency in Corporate Social Responsibility.  

Jan van der Kaaij, Managing Partner of Between-us, “Due to the temporary nature of major sports events issues such as the carbon footprint, waste management and local community involvement are often underestimated. Luckily there is a notable improvement in the sustainability of events as the recent Olympics have demonstrated. However there is still a long way to go. The Sustainable Golf Index can help raise the awareness of golf events and assist them in developing a more sustainable approach.
