Jacobsen, a Textron Specialised Vehicles brand, has announced the renewal of its long-standing global partnership to advance sustainability across golf with the Golf Environment Organisation (GEO).
GEO, the international not-for-profit organisation dedicated to sustainability in golf, provides practical tools and expert support to help golf unlock and celebrate its social and environmental value.
“As a Founding Partner in the highly valuable work GEO undertakes, we are thrilled to be able to demonstrate 10 years of commitment to golf and sustainability,” said Andre Andrade, Director, International Golf Sales for Textron Specialised Vehicles Inc, which designs and manufactures Jacobsen equipment.
He added: “As the only international supplier of turf equipment to hold the coveted ISO 14001 standard for our Environmental Management System, and as a leader in fuel-efficient and hybrid machinery coupled with our efforts to prioritise recycling on-site, we are extremely proud to be able to demonstrate our commitment to the environment as well as having our name alongside GEO.
“As a direct result of this we know just how important a sustainable business approach is to our customers’ reputations and profitability, as well as long-term industry growth.”
Jonathan Smith, GEO’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “From the start, Jacobsen have shown truly unique and outstanding leadership and commitment to support golf, and other sports and amenity sectors in this field.
“It continually goes above and beyond, whether it’s in its own internal operations and innovation, or in education, capacity building and solutions.
“We are very proud to be able to represent them as a founding partner and look forward to continuing to drive sustainability results with them on the ground around the world of golf.”
Jacobsen is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
