SOCIAL IMPACT

  • Social, environmental impact and charitable partnerships are embedded at the heart of Icons Series operations as we aim to leave a legacy of significance at each of the destinations on our global schedule.
  • We are seeking to minimize our impact on the environment by initiating a five-shot plan, going ‘tee-to-green’ as quickly and cleanly as possible.
    • Our partnership with Reflo is a vital part of our first step.  The Rest of the World Team apparel used in the 2022 Icons Series, will recycle the equivalent of 36,608 plastic bottles, and Reflo will also plant 2928 trees as part of the partnership.
    • Icons Series will take our first shot of offsetting the carbon emissions produced whilst assembling the Icons and bringing this event to fruition
    • On each day of the Icons Series event, we will be working closely with LNGC and local charity Angela Cares to minimize food waste and deliver food to those in need.
  • The Icons Foundation will lead on the development and delivery of exciting charitable partnerships on a local and global level.
    • We are working closely with ALS Association – Greater New York Chapter – as our official Charity Partner, to maximize our impact at a local level and enhance their brilliant work to support those receiving such a devastating diagnosis
    • In the US, someone will be diagnosed with ALS approximately every 90 minutes!
    • As the Series expands globally, we will establish an international alliance with the Motor Neurone Disease Association, and generate valuable funds to support the search for a cure
    • The Icons Series and the Icons Foundation will extend our charitable impact by supporting a host of other charities and community projects in New Jersey in 2022. These partnerships will be announced in the lead up to the tournament.
    • The roster of Icons making up the 2022 Icons Series event are wonderful examples of individuals willing to use their influence to make a difference to good causes and maximize their impact on communities and society at large.
    • The Icons Series will offer a charity prize fund, which will be donated to the chosen charities of the winning players, with the $6m Swing offering the potential for even more!
