AIG Women's Open Water Project

Tackling global plastic waste and working to mitigate climate change are pressing global imperatives for the whole world of sport. In 2021, the AIG Women’s Open is proud to partner with adidas’s End Plastic Waste Campaign, and Mastercard’s Priceless Planet Coalition, to use the Open Water Project at Carnoustie to make a world of difference.

Utilising solutions developed by Bluewater – the leading global innovator in drinking water solutions – we are delivering a pioneering new approach to supplying drinking water at a major event by using on-site Water Stations and BPA-free stainless steel refillable bottles.

By refilling your reusable water bottle, you can help end the pollution of our oceans with single-use plastic waste. By making a voluntary donation at on-site Water Stations or here, you can help restore the global forests in Earth’s most vulnerable geographies.

When it comes to protecting the future of our planet, we believe there is strength in numbers. Every person can make a positive difference.

Together we’re making a world of difference.
