Adopt STMA’s Environmental Principles

STMA’s Environmental Committee developed a set of environmental principles to help guide the work of sports field managers. The STMA Board of Directors subsequently adopted the principles and recommends that members also adopt them. The Principles are voluntary and are just a guide. Use them as a framework for your environmental stewardship. They are not step-by-step instructions; rather, they represent a philosophy of responsible and sustainable field management.

With increasing scrutiny about water use, field inputs and the heightened promotion to replace natural grass with synthetic fields, adopting your version of these guidelines may help to improve the level of awareness about your environmental performance. Customize them, as appropriate. Then post them and provide them to your communications department for publication. Your field users will better understand your commitment to preserving and protecting the environment. Once adopted, use this opportunity to promote your environmental stewardship by issuing a press release.
