In early 2020, PG&CC decided to investigate the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP-G) (Audubon link). We are beginning the process of a site assessment for this program. While the achievement of Audubon Certification is an ambitious project, it will assist in PG&CC’s environmentally conscious identification of needs, goals and priorities. Please review the link for more information.
In 2018, PG&CC, in collaboration with Trent University, conducted a Waste Audit Report which resulted in the establishment of compostable kitchen waste collection. Since this time, other sustainability initiatives include sourcing local products, supporting green-initiated businesses as well as recognizing and removal of two invasive species, Dog Strangling Vine and Buckthorn. Please review the link for more information.
In 2021, PG&CC became the first golf club to join the Green Economy Canada (GEP) network. With the assistance of Green UP & Green Economy Peterborough, we are completing a Greenhouse Gas Inventory (Link to report) The findings of that will guide our practices and reduce our carbon footprint going forward.
