A New Acronym

March 10th, 2017

Hands up if you already knew that ‘SDG’ stands for ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ and go to the top of the class if you also knew that the United Nations has identified these as the benchmarks by which the environmental performance of an entire industry can be measured.

What is particularly good to learn is that a WWF report has highlighted the credibility and value of golf’s own third-party sustainability standard and certification system, developed and managed by GEO – the Golf Environment Organization

The GEO CEO, Jonathan Smith, and colleagues should be proud of their achievements………… and take the rest of the week off to celebrate.
