Lottoland has become the first gambling operator to obtain carbon neutral status, along with signing The Climate Pledge.
Working with global climate reduction consultancy Tunley Engineering – which provided a Carbon Assessment – this allowed Lottoland to “fully comprehend and visualise” its carbon footprint in annual tonnes of Carbon Equivalent.
“We are thrilled to have achieved carbon neutral status and to have signed the Climate Pledge,” noted Lottoland CEO, Nigel Birrell.
“At Lottoland we are committed to being socially and environmentally responsible not just for our customers but for our employees too. We are proud to be taking a leadership position in climate change.”
With the assessment and reduction completed in accordance with ISO 14064, Lottoland has now signed the Climate Pledge alongside over 200 other companies globally, further cementing its commitment to a greener future and achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 or sooner.
“We’re excited to continue to welcome companies to The Climate Pledge,” said Sally Fouts, global lead at Amazon for The Climate Pledge. “Businesses have played a role in contributing to climate change, but deep cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases can stabilise increasing temperatures.
“This is why urgent, collaborative action by companies around the world is needed. Pledge signatories are uniquely positioned to rise to the challenge of addressing climate change and helping to create the low-carbon economy of the future. I look forward to seeing all we can accomplish over the next two decades, together.”
