LET presents Chevalier as Sustainable Golf Champion

The Ladies European Tour, which has been pursuing the “Celebrating the Green” initiative for more sustainability since last year and is working together with the GEO Foundation on this, has won another player in Camille Chevalier as “Sustainable Golf Champion”. The French Chevalier, who won the Hero Women’s Indian Open last year and became Rookie of the Year, will, alongside Suzann Pettersen, contribute to the further dissemination of the LET’s sustainability approach to the public.

“I’ve always had a special relationship with nature and the great outdoors – one of the main reasons I love golf is that it takes place in beautiful settings,” she said, explaining her commitment to the subject. “My interest naturally evolved towards conservation and protection of nature, as I was growing up at a time of increasing awareness of the impacts of climate change, plastic pollution, biodiversity loss and the need to live more sustainably.

“It’s important for golfers to look around when they’re playing. You can admire the landscapes and wildlife that can be found on the course – this amazement is already a first measure to protect the ecosystem. This close contact with nature makes us aware of its need for protection.”
