Microgaming has announced the completion of its 2020 International Organisation for Standardisation audit 14001 at its headquarters in Isle of Man, coinciding with World Environment Day.
The ISO 14001 certification is seen as a ‘significant milestone’ for Microgaming, and is the international standard that sets out a structure to help businesses develop an efficient environmental management programme. This approval follows its commitment to sustainability, which ‘reinforces its commitment to improving its environmental impact over the long term.’
Microgaming’s certification also follows on from the technology provider’s existing initiatives through its PlayItForward CSR programme, which aims to guide its business as well as the local community on the Isle of Man towards a greener and more sustainable future.
Microgaming CEO John Coleman has said: “At Microgaming, we’re passionate about protecting our planet and improving our environmental impact.
“Sustainability has long been a focal point for PlayItForward, which is driven by the values and passion of our people, who are constantly implementing new initiatives to make our world greener.
“ISO 14001 certification is a significant milestone for the business, and I am proud of our collective efforts in helping to safeguard our home and planet for current and future generations.”
Microgaming’s 45,000 square feet headquarters in July 2017 was one of the first privately owned office buildings on the Isle of Man to receive a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ sustainability ranking. In addition , the company has also made a concerted effort in recent years to reduce waste generated at ICE London.
Microgaming revealed numerous environmentally friendly activities including the hiring of a full-time environmental coordinator in an attempt to maintain to improve its BREEAM ranking.
