  2. Green Drive on Hole 15 where 100 trees are planted for every time the green is driven

  3. Beach clean at Playa Alcanada on Wednesday 1st November

  4. Providing recycling bins at 42 different locations around the course and facilities

  5. Recycling collection from leading Mallorcan waste management supplier

  6. Providing water to players in renewable materials, made of cardboard and bioplastic packaging

  7. Providing filtered drinking water fountains for spectators to refill their own bottle, reducing the amount of single use plastic on site

  8. Pin flags made from upcycled ocean plastic waste

  9. Reduction in accreditation passes to reduce single use plastic

  10. Hospitality wristbands made from recycled materials and bamboo

  11. Full transfer to digital ticketing and no paper tickets
