For many years, GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf has facilitated collaboration between leading industry associations, practitioners, research institutes, NGOs, governmental agencies and businesses in the development and delivery of a modern, credible and accessible sustainability system for golf.
The system includes guidance and support tools; a credible certification scheme with standards, assurance and impacts monitoring which are ‘Code Compliant’ as required by the ISEAL Alliance for credibility in sustainability labelling; and a growing bank of data and stories from around the world.
GEO Foundation collaborates widely around advocacy and support; and oversees GEO Certification Ltd to administer the Certification and provide oversite of independent verifier network.
GEO Foundation is a full member of the ISEAL Alliance. Read more about code compliance with ISEAL.
The Certification system also follows a formal complaints and appeals process.
