Operating a sustainable business
For us, operating in a responsible and sustainable manner is not only the right thing to do, it makes fundamental business sense.
We benefit from long-term relationships with our players and other stakeholders, and aligning our approach to meet their needs facilitates better relationships. Our desire to be a responsible business leader comes from the top and is reflected in our Company purpose, ‘Crafting entertainment with care’. This year we’re proud to have achieved external recognition of our sustainability credentials with membership into the FTSE4Good Index Series.
Our sustainability priorities, which take into consideration our business strategic goals, risks and the perspectives of our stakeholders, are shaped around our impacts on three key stakeholder groups – our players, our people and our community.
To drive forward our approach this year we have established a Board-level ESG Committee which reports on progress directly to the Board. The ESG Committee is responsible for overseeing and publicly reporting on the Company’s approach to sustainability, responsible gambling and stakeholder engagement.
For the first time this year, our Sustainability Report includes two new sections: the Non-financial Information Statement, and the Section 172(1) statement.
