STRI hosts European meeting for Committed to Green

6.00pm 25th April 2000 - Management Topics

A European line up of top ecology officers from all over Europe has attended a technical working meeting at STRI in Bingley. The officers included representatives from Austria, Belgium, England, Finland, Italy, Norway, Portugal and Scotland. They took part in discussions seeking to develop a standard for golf courses throughout Europe in line with Committed to Green.

Also present were Dean Cleaver representing the European Greenkeepers Association (FEGGA), Susan Moorgenroth from LGA, an environmental auditing institute working with the German Golf Federation and Alex Dyke from Green Globe, a leading environmental initiative in the tourism industry.

Bob Taylor, senior ecologist and STRI representative on the Technical Working Panel opened the programme. Other presentations were provided by STRI staff including Kate Entwistle, plant pathologist, David Lawson, research chemist, and Jeff Perris, head of advisory and construction services.

There are now almost 200 golf clubs across Europe joining the Committed to Green programme, many of them undertaking good environmental management which merits public recognition.
