Turf manufacturer Ransomes Jacobsen has signed a three-year agreement to become the official supplier of turf maintenance equipment and vehicles to Golf Environment Europe.

GEE is a pan-European initiative working to promote environmental sustainability in golf.

Developed from the Committed to Green Foundation's principles, it is supported by a range of golfing organisations and is committed to the promotion of environmental responsibility across the golf industry.

Chief executive Jonathan Smith said: "We are delighted to have signed this accord with Ransomes Jacobsen, as it has a proven track record of commitment to environmental issues. It's this type of commitment that we need, right across our industry; and this is amply demonstrated by the way Ransomes manages and develops its business: a portfolio of products that can be run on alternative fuels, using biodegradable oil and the first company in the industry to be awarded the ISO14001 standard for environmental management." Ransomes Jacobsen MD David Withers added: "The signing of this agreement with GEE is yet more excellent news for our company.We all have a social responsibility and we are committed to environmental best practice and management and are determined to make this agreement a two-way process."
