Jacobsen and GEO (Golf Environment Organisation) will renew their partnership after celebrating a successful 10 years working alongside each other.  It was announced at the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) in Harrogate that they would continue their dynamic relationship for years to come.

Jacobsen announced the renewal of its long-standing global partnership with GEO to keep advancing sustainability across golf.

Jacobsen are ecstatic to continue this partnership that has proven beneficial to their business and the game of golf:

“As a Founding Partner in the highly valuable work GEO undertakes, we are thrilled to be able to demonstrate 10 years of commitment to golf and sustainability, “ said Andre Andrade, director, international golf sales for Textron Specialised Vehicles Inc, which designs and manufactures Jacobsen equipment.


"As the only international supplier of turf equipment to hold the coveted ISO 14001 standard for our Environmental Management System, and as a leader in fuel efficient and hybrid machinery coupled with our efforts to prioritise recycling on-site, we are extremely proud to be able to demonstrate our commitment to the environment as well as having our name alongside GEO."

He added: "As a direct result of this we know just how important a sustainable business approach is to our customer’s reputations and profitability, as well as long term industry growth."

GEO are equally pleased to continue their relationship with Jacobsen and their partnership has went a long way in their aims to dedicate helping the golf community around the world to establish leadership in environmental enhancements:

"From the start, Jacobsen has a truly unique and outstanding leadership and commitment to support golf, and other sports and amenity sectors in this field,” said GEO CEO, Jonathan Smith."

He added: "It continually goes above and beyond, whether it’s in its own internal operations and innovation, or in education, capacity building and solutions. We are very proud to be able to represent Jacobsen as a founding partner, and look forward to continuing to drive sustainability results with it on the ground around the world of golf."


Jacobsen, a Textron Specialised Vehicles business, is a leading global manufacturer of golf cars, utility and personal transportation vehicles, professional turf-care equipment, and ground support equipment.

GEO is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to sustainability in golf that provides practical tools and expert support to help golf unlock and celebrate its social and environmental value.
