Japan's first golf course carbon-neutral initiative
Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture, where the Biwako Country Club is located, has almost no chimneys and is an eco-friendly city. Golf is a sport that cannot be achieved without nature, such as grass and trees. In order to enjoy golf in the future, we are making efforts to aim for a golf course that coexists with nature for nature conservation.
We have introduced renewable energy and energy-saving equipment provided by Yanmar, and have started efforts to reduce annual CO2 emissions of 802t (estimated figures based on actual emissions in fiscal 2019) to virtually zero.

Biwako Country Club has introduced renewable energy and energy saving equipment. Furthermore, it is an environment-friendly and sustainable golf course that achieves zero CO2 emissions through optimal energy control by an energy management system and CO2 reduction by carbon offsetting.
