Company and Founder
Carbon Par is an Icelandic private limited company, ID 580102-2120, founded and led by Edwin Roald, a golf course architect with twenty years of international experience from both sides of the Atlantic. Throughout this time, Edwin has advocated environmentally driven concepts in golf course planning, alongside his work as an accredited verifier for The GEO Foundation, sustainability committee chairman and council member for The European Institute of Golf Course Architects and board member of The Scandinavian Turfgrass and Research Foundation.
Seeking to combine his architectural and scientific background with his passion for golf's potential contribution to nature and man, Edwin launched Carbon Par in 2019, first as a scientific research initiative. As interest in similar research has grown, the company has built a large database of research results and other insights that are now used to help golf course owners in their climate action.
