Green Drive: Our commitment to environmental responsibility
"Our goal is to deliver world class sport in a way that not only respects, but also helps replenish, the landscapes and communities that provide so much to us." - Keith Pelley
Through our Green Drive initiative, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by 50% by 2030, and being fully net zero carbon by 2040. We are signatories to the United Nations Sport for Climate Action Framework, and the United Nations Race to Zero pledge.
As an environmentally responsible organisation, we are:
· Protecting and promoting the importance of nature
· Conserving natural resources and avoiding waste and pollution
· Acting ethically and leaving lasting benefits and legacies for communities
· Reducing and then credibly offsetting unavoidable carbon emissions
The Green Drive programme was launched on World Environment Day, June 5, 2021 and is being delivered with support from the GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf (GEO) - a non-profit organisation dedicated to inspiring, supporting and recognising sustainability in and through golf around the world.
Green Drive focuses on three core pillars:
Lead by Example by integrating best practices into core operations, owned events and procurement, establishing Tour wide policies and tools, and activating new partnerships.
Support and Share by providing guidance and examples of best practice, and fostering a growing community of collective action and results.
Promote and Inspire by raising awareness, inspiring others and establishing a credible leadership position for golf in sustainable sport.
