Woburn achieves GEO Certified distinction for the third time
We'd like to congratulate Woburn Golf Club in England for successfully joining a small group of sustainable courses across the world that have become GEO Certified® three times - demonstrating ongoing leadership in the areas of nature, resources, climate and community.
The club has undertaken some great projects reducing irrigation dependence on mains water and consumption, engagement with wildlife and ecology groups to develop habitat management plans and reducing energy consumption through LED installation and hybrid technologies.
Below are two examples of Woburn's OnCourse® highlights which demonstrate their sustainable practices and how the club has succesfully unlocked the business benefits of sustainability.
In the club's most recent GEO Certified report, there are a wide range of practices and activities documented which include:
- Collaborating with local wildlife groups to foster nature on the course and surrounding estate
- Eliminating single-use plastics and coffee cups on-site to conserve resources
- Encouraging staff members to volunteer their time for local charities and community groups
