Signs of Change | Transition to Sustainability

 Signs of Change | Transition to Sustainability

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">" />

The Signs of Change e-conference was held in November 2010, and gave individuals and businesses a chance to showcase their sustainable practices to the rest of New Zealand. A shared acknowledgement that the 'business as usual' mentality is leading us down an undesirable path unified the participants. The conference was a celebration of realistic attempts to have a positive impact on our planet and the quality of life of future generations.

Over two days, 250 delegates from seven centres shared inspiring presentations, streamed around the country via a dedicated high-speed network.

The participants also produced a 'statement of change' document that summarises the key ideals of the emerging sustainability movement, centred around the idea that 'we have enough.'

Golf's Drive Toward Sustainability

EIFG LOGOStewardship of natural resources, engagement in the communities where golf facilities are located, and maintaining prosperous businesses are vital to the long-term health of the golf industry.

The Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, is leading a collaborative industry-wide effort toward a sustainable approach to golf facility management.

Sustainability is about ensuring profitable businesses while making decisions that are in the long-term interest of the environment and communities. The focus is on continual improvement by professionally managing and conserving resources and inputs, and reducing waste while providing playing conditions that satisfy golfers of today and tomorrow.
