Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club Leading Environmental Revolution by Composting Food and Organic Waste Onsite

In a bid to continue its positive impact on the environment, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club will begin composting all staff cafeteria food waste onsite which includes meat, bones, fruit, vegetable peelings, plate scrapings, spoilt food, wasted food from plates, trimmings. The team will be cleverly utilising all discarded and unused food to feed back into enriching the beautiful gardens, lawns, plants and trees and also have plans to roll out this fantastic initiative to include all onsite restaurants.

 "Each year nearly one third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year. These organizational responsibilities form an important part of our mission to have the greatest possible impact on the environment. Therefore food and organic waste composting is an important step we all need to take together to make a difference for our planet." Christopher May, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Golf.

Not only will the initiative be benefiting the environment, it will lead to cost efficiencies, site cleanliness and continue Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club's leadership in supporting green practices.  In January 2016 Dubai Creek followed sister club Emirates Golf Club who became the first golf club in the MENA region to become GEO certified in January 2015, as part of this initiative the Club's continuously commit to improving sustainability, water, nature, energy, supply chain and pollution control; the newly introduced food composting initiative aids to nurturing this goal.
