Planting the seeds for a greener, more sustainable future.
Environmental Management System (EMS)
We have extended the campus footprint. Sixty Two, is one of the Isle of Man’s first privately held office buildings to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ sustainability rating.
Our aim is to focus on managing our new location’s life cycle by supporting the ongoing health and wellbeing of our workforce by establishing a more sustainable environment which encourages staff to create a greener future.Click here to learn more
Microgaming has made a conscious effort to lower the waste produced at
its events, including staff functions, volunteering days and industry trade shows.
We vowed to continue our eco-friendly pledge by reusing more than 75% of our
exhibition stand from ICE 2019, as well as recycling and donating materials
to help protect our planet, while benefiting those in need.
Other green community initiatives include financing a local Recycle Collect comfort
fund, which gives individuals on lower incomes access to recycling collection services.
We have also supported the Isle of Man Foodbank ‘bag for life’ initiative,
by donating eco-friendly reusable bags to the charity’s users to
reduce the number of single-use plastic bags used at the service.
Annually, we recycle IT equipment and redundant furniture, with
proceeds to donated to PlayItForward charities including Victim Support,
Live at Home, and St Christopher’s. We also upcycle furniture
where possible – recently restoring and donating our on-campus
photobooth to local charity, Isle of Man Childrens Centre.
eBikes - charging the future
PlayItForward invested in a range of electric bikes – perfect for staff members looking to run an errand or simply wanting a breath of fresh air and a ride around the block! Stored on campus with a dedicated cycle lane, each eBike can reach between 30 and 140 power-assisted miles, comes with locks and saddlebags, and have front and rear lights for the dark days of winter.
Our Sustainability Pledge
In 2020, Microgaming created and launched a
Sustainability Pledge, demonstrating our commitment to
protecting the environment, preventing pollution,
and continually improving our environmental performance
as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.
In support of this commitment, we identified the significant
environmental impact of activities, products, and services within
the context of the business, and the determined controls and
environmental aims to reduce these impacts to a reasonable level.
The pledge and its environmental aims are assessed
at regular review points, and we encourage employees,
suppliers, and other stakeholders to do the same.
The pledge supports our EMS and the green initiatives that
fall under it and helped shape our progress towards achieving
We’re lucky to call our home a UNESCO Biosphere – with the Isle of Man being the only entire nation in the world to hold this designation. As a proud UNESCO Biosphere Partner, both Microgaming and its people have pledged to protect our surrounding natural resources and in recent years have supported a number of local conservation projects. This includes the development of a micro forest in the Isle of Man and supporting numerous Manx Wildlife Trust initiatives including a major seagrass research scheme and several projects supporting the conservation of puffins, hedgehogs, and sharks.
