Hole-in-one for climate protection: new CO2 golf calculator is presented

The topic of climate protection is becoming increasingly important in the sports industry. The possibilities to save and avoid CO2 are enormous. For those involved, this often comes as a surprise, because many clubs and associations are still partly unaware of the possible levers and how different measures can affect emissions. Because the points of analysis to be taken into account are different for each sport, myclimate is now presenting for the first time a CO2 calculator developed with the Bavarian Golf Association e. V. and supported by the German Golf Association e. V., which is specifically aimed at golf.

Do golf and climate protection go together? The answer, as in many other sports, is a resounding "Yes!". Although every golf club has different options, types of facilities and geographical conditions, what unites the operators is the interest in making an active contribution to climate protection. Alina Feucht, who, as Team Leader Corporate Partnerships at myclimate, develops climate solutions for the sports industry, sees this as a great added value: "That is the special attraction of golf: the multitude of analysis points, the associated possibilities for improvement in the infrastructure, but especially also the great commitment of the participating clubs." She is pleased that golf is now following German sports leagues such as the German Football League (DFL), the German Ice Hockey League (DEL) and the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL), which already publish sustainability guidelines.

All relevant features for the effective resource and CO2 management of golf clubs can now be found bundled in a new CO2 golf calculator from myclimate. The simple CO2 balancing tool was developed together with the Bavarian Golf Association and individually tailored to the needs of golf courses. It can therefore be adapted and is ideally suited for all German golf courses. The aim is to take the first step and individually calculate the corporate carbon footprints (CCF) - also known as CO₂ balance - in order to derive climate protection measures.
