“Everyone at GEO Foundation is passionate about golf becoming a leader in sustainability and climate action. We are motivated to help the sport build on all it has done to date and the value it already provides.  To act as effectively as possible in response to the obvious need and urgency.  Embracing its opportunity and its responsibility, and establishing a place in history as the sport which did the most, when it was needed most.”
