To support sustainability within and beyond the gaming industry, IGT is expanding its corporate citizenship to participate in a set of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Here are some of the other ways that IGT has worked to stay ahead of the game and foster sustainability in the past year:
Recognizing We Are Stronger Together IGT values diversity and inclusion, important drivers of innovation and growth. In 2017, we expanded our Executive Diversity & Inclusion Council to meet the evolving needs of our customers, our people, and our communities.
Staying Mindful of Our Resource Use Our teams around the world collaborated to enlarge the scope of the sites included in IGT’s environmental data-collection tool, one of the reasons why IGT has been recognized by the CDP as a leader in addressing climate change.
Supporting Responsible Gaming The collective efforts of the Company’s global Responsible Gaming Working Group made IGT the only vendor with distinct industry certifications for responsible gaming across the Lottery, Digital, and Gaming segments.
Helping to Build A Better Future IGT has made education a top priority in our community support, collaborating with schools and colleges on a wide range of initiatives, including the launch of a Women’s Entrepreneurship Program in Costa Rica in 2017. Through our After School Advantage program, IGT has built more than 300 digital-learning centers since 1999 to support at-risk children in gaining competitive skills.
Ensuring Security & Engaging with Customers to Drive Growth IGT keeps well over 100 billion transactions safe annually with cutting-edge cybersecurity technologies. Through dialogue with customers, we focus our research and development on products and services that engage players and help transform the gaming world.
IGT is committed to helping our customers and communities stay ahead of the game with sustainable practices that reflect our values.”

TAKING CARE OF BIZNESS - Click here to read this article
Several years ago, as our team was setting out to develop a more effective way to communicate and share data with the lottery retailer network we managed, we recognized that we could expand our vision. Not only could we bring vital information, training, and inventory management tools to retailers’ fingertips, we could offer lotteries something that wasn’t available in the industry: a full set of business intelligence tools that provide all lottery stakeholders with a range of solutions to identify growth opportunities, support execution, and save time and resources across all lottery touch points. From experience in Illinois, Indiana, and New Jersey, and as part of a larger team that manages lotteries in jurisdictions around the globe, we saw from an operator perspective that the available tools didn’t always alleviate the pain points associated with the lottery category. Since that time, IGT has fulfilled the original vision with a synchronized suite of nimble, user-friendly applications that lottery employees, sales staffs, and retailers can deploy to inform smarter, fact-based decisions and propel the actions that drive sales. These state-of-the-art applications – or BizApps – were shaped and are continually refined with extensive input from customers, retailers, sales reps, focus groups, user studies, and IGT’s lottery operational teams, who know the ins and outs of performance analytics, sales-force and retailer-network management, and the challenges faced by a telesales team aiming to drive same store sales. In a first for the industry, lotteries can now choose from a coordinated suite of smart and open business intelligence tools to manage the activities that drive growth.
