Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore is set to make history by becoming the world’s first golf club to join the United Nation’s Sports for Climate Action Initiative.
The prestigious golf venue, set on Sentosa Island alongside a diverse array of leisure experiences, is already highly regarded for its approach to environmental sustainability.
The UN’s Sports for Climate Action Initiative aims to support and guide sports organisations and their communities on a path to achieving the global climate goals set out by world leaders in the Paris Agreement.
The golf club will add its name to an already impressive list of sporting organisations to have joined. Including the New York Yankees, La Liga, Sky Sports and the All England Lawn Tennis Club (Wimbledon).
A forum to pursue climate action
The initiative also provides sports organisations with a forum to pursue climate action in a consistent and supportive manner by learning from one another, disseminating good practices, lessons learned, developing new innovations, and collaborating on areas of mutual interest.
Andrew Johnston, General Manager & Director of Agronomy at Sentosa Golf Club, comment:
“Becoming the first ever golf club to join the UN’s Sports for Climate Action Initiative is a tremendous honour for everyone associated with Sentosa Golf Club. We have already taken great strides with our sustainability programme in the last two years and are therefore extremely excited to be joining this initiative. We believe it is the right step for us as a club to continue on our journey to tackle climate change throughout the world and the game of golf.”
