England Golf launch smartphone app for sustainability

2 minute read

England Golf has teamed up with a smartphone app that helps clubs measure, track and improve their sustainability.

The governing body believes their partnership with Zellar has the potential to save golf clubs across the country a total of £1.5m and reduce carbon emissions by over 1,200 tonnes by 2026. The average club, England Golf say, will save up to £4,100 and cut energy consumption by 33 per cent.

It follows a successful trial with over 40 clubs.

Zellar builds a tailored action plan for clubs and gives them an overall sustainability score. It costs £299 for a one-year membership but clubs can save 10 per cent by visiting zellar.com/england-golf and entering the code EGC10.

England Golf Sustainability Manager, Owen James, said: “Zellar excites us as an organisation because of the step-by-step approach. Anyone, from a sustainability expert to someone who has never even heard the word emissions before, can utilise the platform and make positive change off the back of it.

“Through this relationship, we are encouraging golf clubs to track their emissions, make positive changes, and future-proof themselves as a business. By identifying energy and emissions hotspots, tracking change and renewing contracts within the app, Zellar is a one-stop-shop for golf clubs to support their drive for a more sustainable future.”

England Golf say 47 clubs have already joined the app and, to date, have implemented 244 operational changes and made over 200 energy adjustments which will drive down energy consumption and bills.
