(Paulsboro, NJ) – Aquatrols – the world’s largest manufacturer of cutting-edge soil surfactants and related technologies – has named Paul Carter the inaugural recipient of the Aquatrols Conservation Award.
“Golf course superintendents are some of the leading stewards of the environment in our society, and too often their conservation efforts go unnoticed,” says Matt Foster, President and CEO of Aquatrols. “Paul’s dedication to making better use of natural resources and applied inputs mirrors our mission to pioneer new methods that advance conservation and health for agriculture, turf, and horticulture. We’re proud to name him the inaugural winner of the Aquatrols Conservation Award.”
Carter’s additional accolades include the President’s Award for Environmental Stewardship by the Board of Directors of the GCSAA (2015), GCSAA national public and overall Environmental Leadership in Golf Award (2013), TurfNet’s Superintendent of the Year (2011), and four consecutive regional awards for environmental leadership (2009 – 2012). He holds a bachelor’s degree in Horticulture-Landscape Design from Auburn University.
Under Carter’s management, Bear Trace has earned the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award twice (2009, 2012), was designated a Groundwater Guardian Green Site, and reduced its chemical and water use by 75 percent with a variety of conservation programs.
Conservation is central to everything done at Aquatrols. Internal upgrades to promote positive impacts on the surrounding environment include the installation of a pollinator garden with native plant species, a nature walking trail around headquarters and a new motto, “Respect the Drop,” a reminder that water is vital to all aspects of life.
