IGT as a global leader in the gaming market.
July 06, 2016 - IGT's role as the global leader in the gaming market can be assessed through the
economic value it generates and distributes. “Economic value” provides a fuller meaning than a company's mere profit, as it
incorporates the interests of both internal and external stakeholders, showing the economic impact of corporate activities on
host communities. In 2015, IGT distributed a value of U.S. $4,914 billion through operating costs, payments to provider of
capital, employee wages and benefit, payment to government, and community investments.
Long term vision
July 19, 2016 - Sustainable development is generally understood to be a combination of environmental,
social, and economic performance. Managing 'sustainability', whether the starting point is economic, social, or environmental, can
help many organizations think beyond what they themselves consider as a highly constrained approach based on short-term aims,
growth, sales, and profits.
However, economic performance is typically the most challenging component to report. There is no universal consensus among
companies that businesses should be economically sustainable, though most concur that sustainability is desired to prevent
the negative impacts of a company's closure.
Innovative concepts such as intellectual capital, as well as techniques such as brand valuation, are beginning to be used
to calculate sustainable economic performance. A more strategic approach enables steady, organic growth, a planned
accumulation and distribution of increasingly intangible assets, and prudent management of risks and opportunities.
For this reason, IGT has decided to calculate the generation and distribution of its economic value.
Creation and distribution of economic added value
July 29, 2016 - “Information on the creation and distribution of economic value provides a basic indication
of how the organization has created wealth for stakeholders. Several components of the economic value generated and distributed (EVG&D)
also provide an economic profile of the organization, which may be useful for normalizing other performance figures. If presented in country-level
detail, EVG&D can provide a useful picture of the direct monetary value added to local economies.” (* GRI/G4 - EC1)
