Microgaming Becomes ISO 14001 Certified for World Environment Day
As World Environment Day came a few days ago, Microgaming has put out an announcement, about an audit for the ISO 14001 standard, which has been completed by the International Organization for Standardization. The target was their HQ on Isle of Man.
If you don’t know, ISO 14001 is the standard that’s been set at an international level, for environmental management systems (EMS), used by businesses to implement measures with an environmental impact. Other initiatives that the provider has implemented in the past, include the PlayItForward initiative and their CSR programme.
As of 2017, Microgaming’s headquarters were in a new office building, which they’ve built to get the Excellent sustainability rating when using the BREEAM rating system for such buildings.
As they’ve tried to improve and continue to work on this rating, Microgaming has put in place several practices that are friendly with the environment. One was the fact that they appointed someone to be full time coordinator on environmental issues, leading all activities and management systems that aimed to take down their carboon footprint. They invested in both public bus passes and electric bikes, along with a different solution for waste management, such as smart bins which calculate the carbon footprint, and several others.
Thanks to its role when it comes to ecology and CSR, the company received a couple of different awards in recent years, among which were Best Leadership at ICE 2019, or Best CSR Strategy at HR Excellent 2018.
John Coleman, the Microgaming CEO, announced that the company is passionate about the protection of our planet, and about improving their impact on the environment. The new certification is a big milestone for their business, and they are proud about the effort that has gone into helping secure this planet for future generations.
