Sustainable Development at KLM Open
The most sustainable event in the world
From 6 to 9 September the most sustainable Golf event in the world (KLM Open) was played at the Hilversumsche Golf Club.
Between-us, an international CSR consultancy firm, shared the results of the first Sustainable Golf Index. This Index measures the perceived sustainability of the professional European Golf tournaments. The Index is based on the ‘Sustainable Event Monitor’ which was a co-creation of Between-US and NHTV Academy for leisure. The KLM Open, an official tournament on the PGA European Tour is ranked on top with an index score of 62,9%.
Roy Scheerder, Vice-president Marketing of KLM: “We are very proud with this award. We think it’s a great initiative. Events can work on their sustainability in various ways, most of these are not even that complicated. At KLM sponsoring and CSR go side by side. By doing so we keep the message to our customers and stakeholders in line.
Jeroen Enzerink of Maison van den Boer is one of the suppliers to the event. “We have made several investments in sustainable solutions and therefore we are one of the frontrunners in making the ”public” catering business more sustainable and green. At the event Maison van den Boer will only make use of organic ingredients and of course compostable disposables.
Thomas Kascha of SD Trading is proud that his company will also have a small part in this sustainable event. Maison van den Boer will also use our sustainable HAMPI palm plates disposables. The story of SD Strading is already known: “Single Use Lasting Experience!”
