Why It Matters to Us

Climate change is no longer a faraway ‘global’ issue that we can ignore. We are already facing the brunt of climate change symptoms in Malaysia and the countries that we operate in, such as ever-frequent heatwaves and heavy downpours that caused unprecedented flooding. Our business viability ties directly with global climate health. As past business trends have indicated, severe weather affects the likelihood of people playing golf and, thus, affects our business as a golf equipment retailer. Poor climate health also threatens the stability of the global supply chain of golf products, raising costs and making golf more difficult for all. If and when the climate worsens, golf as a sport will not remain a priority over foundational agendas like food security, social stability, and ecological balance. We acknowledge the world’s changing climate as our driver to accelerate our sustainability transformation to avert disaster and help realise a better reality, especially for future generations. We must put the reality of climate change at the forefront of our decision-making. Our definition of being resilient about climate change is not about sitting by and withstanding the impact. It’s also about active transformation and uniting stakeholders for action and change.
