KemperSports has launched its Green to a Tee™ environmental initiative, a program designed to extend and formalize the company’s practices in environmentally sound property management. Green to a Tee, which was introduced to staff in February at the annual KemperSports Leadership Conference, encompasses environmentally focused initiatives within several core areas of facility operations, including:
• Golf course maintenance
• Habitat management
• Water conservation
• Energy usage
• “Green” vendor utilization
• Staff education and training
The program also arms more than 5,000 KemperSports staffers throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico with tools and training in environmentally friendly practices that they can implement on the job and in their homes.
“Green to a Tee is an interactive program that gives KemperSports staffers not only an awareness of environmental practices, but also real-world applications that they can begin to use immediately,” says KemperSports CEO Steve Skinner. “As a company, we have always tried to act in an environmentally sensitive manner and to be good partners in the communities where we operate. This program will take that commitment to the next level.”
To track each property’s progress, the program is divided into four distinct levels of certification (KemperSports Green Levels I through IV). All facilities are expected to achieve Level I status, with many test sites already fulfilling the requirements necessary for Level I classification. Levels II, III and IV call for an increasing degree of demonstrated environmental commitment.
