Zero Carbon Golf Tours

We are committed to reducing the carbon footprint within the golf tourism sector.

We are delighted to announce our involvement in the launch of a new Zero Carbon Golf Vacations initiative through The Scottish Inbound Golf Tour Operators’ Association (SIGTOA) . 

The group (SIGTOA) comprising of Scotland’s leading incoming golf tourism businesses are donating a minimum annual donation of £7,500 to the Woodland Trust to absorb 300 tonnes of carbon dioxide, through the planting of at least 1,280 trees, as part of SIGTOA’s strategy to reduce the overall carbon footprint generated and move to Zero Carbon by 2025.

Scotland Golf Tours and all SIGTOA members will each donate an amount to show their commitment to reduce the carbon footprint by the golf tourism sector. This donation allows the Woodland Trust to focus on their mission to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, creating havens for wildlife and boosting biodiversity.

Malcolm Roughead, CEO for VisitScotland was delighted to support the initiative;

“Scotland and Scottish Tourism have ambitious plans to address the climate emergency and mitigate our carbon footprint but to be successful it has to be a collective effort and I welcome this great initiative by SIGTOA and its members in conjunction with The Woodland Trust.

This initiative demonstrates clearly how tourism is a force for good sustaining communities across the whole country and nurturing those natural assets which make Scotland a great destination for golfers from around the world.”
