iCAP certification

July 19, 2016 - IGT has been certified by the Internet Compliance Assessment Program (iCAP) certification from the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG). The iCAP certification provides assurance to operators and consumers that IGT's business-to-consumer (B2C) websites and platforms offered in the business-to-business (B2B) market are trustworthy. It also validates that the Company is compliant with the Internet Responsible Gambling Standards, also developed by NCPG, which are the highest standards for online responsible gaming in the U.S., meeting or exceeding the existing online regulations adhered to by jurisdictions around the world.

IGT received an independent assessment of its B2B website, IGTgames.com, and an independent assessor confirmed the effectiveness of IGT's technology solutions and tools on its remote gaming platforms that monitor players' behavior and assess potential excessive or illegal gaming activities. IGT is the second vendor to receive this certification worldwide.

Congratulations to IGT for the rigorous iCAP assessment,” said Keith S. Whyte, Executive Director of the NCPG. “It demonstrates leadership to seek this voluntary certification and commitment to achieve it.

Economic Responsibility

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)

After School Advantage

IGT's After School Advantage (ASA) program is a global community investment program that offers qualifying non-profit community agencies and public schools with digital learning centers to provide underprivileged children ages five to 18 with a meaningful learning experience in a safe environment during the critical after-school hours. Each ASA center is unique in its design and specific to an organization's needs. This initiative is meant to bridge the digital divide among at-risk children by using technological tools that are most appropriate to their individual learning needs and environment.

Environmental Responsibility

Environmental awareness as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility program.

July 06, 2016 - IGT is committed to conducting its business in an environmentally responsible manner.

Guaranteeing future generations

July 19, 2016 - According to Our Common Future: Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development (1987), environmental sustainability could be defined as meeting the resource and services needs of current and future generations without compromising the health of the ecosystems that provide them. Balance, resilience, and interconnectedness allow human society to satisfy its needs while neither exceeding the capacity of its supporting ecosystems to regenerate themselves, nor by diminishing biological diversity. For that reason, IGT has decided to report on its environmental impact.

Carbon Disclosure Project

The Carbon Disclosure Project, or CDP, is a non-profit organization that aims to transform business activities of the largest international companies by influencing their strategic decisions and policy-making processes to create a more sustainable world. CDP pursues this goal by incentivizing companies to publicly disclose the environmental impact of their business activities, with a particular focus on their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and on the emissions reduction projects they are implementing.

IGT is committed to supporting the CDP initiative and tackling climate change. The Company has decided to participate in the 2016 questionnaire. Publicly disclosed data will be published on CDP website in the month of October.

Last year, legacy GTECH scored 95 (out of 100) in the disclosure category of the CDP questionnaire, which led to the Company being named “Most Improved” in Italy during a ceremony held at the Italian Stock Exchange in Milan on Nov. 12, 2015.
