International Game Technology (IGT) has formally taken the first step to target reduced greenhouse gas emissions with its commitment to the Science-based Targets initiative (SBTi).
The company, which produces slot machines and other gambling technology, has officially pledged to set near and long term targets to reduce emissions, in line with the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
It will focus on targets associated with the new SBTi Net Zero Criteria and report its progress every year in its annual sustainability report.
Wendy Montgomery, IGT SVP Marketing, Communications and Sustainability said: “IGT is advancing its sustainability leadership in the gaming industry by joining more than 2,000 companies worldwide committed to the SBTi in reducing their emissions, generating positive value for our planet and our future while continuing to grow their business.
“Making a formal commitment to setting science-based targets advances IGT’s established sustainability programme and underscores our focus on ESG activities.”
