The American Gaming Association (AGA) has published a compendium providing an overview of environment, social, and governance (ESG) issues in gaming as part of its initiative to define ESG for gaming, understand its members’ commitments, and chart a path forward for the entire industry.
The findings demonstrate the association’s commitment to advancing sustainability, strengthening diversity, equity, and inclusion, investing in communities, and responsible leadership. It also includes the ESG efforts of AGA members that are helping to improve the planet, gaming communities, and its employee and customer experience.
Members featured in the report include the likes of AGS, Aristocrat, Boyd Gaming, DraftKings, Entain, Everi, FanDuel Group, GeoComply, GLI, GlobalPayments, IGT, Kambi, MGM Resorts International, NOVOMATIC, Penn National Gaming, Rush Street Gaming/Rush Street Interactive, Seminole/Hard Rock Gaming, Sightline Payments, and Wynn Resorts.
In a statement, AGA President and CEO Bill Miller said that the ESG compendium is just the “starting point” for the association and its members.
Miller said: “This is just a starting point for the AGA and our members. We will use today’s findings to drive honest conversations among our membership—and the industry broadly—about our strengths and opportunities to improve. With the help of industry leaders, this initiative will only make the gaming industry stronger, and I am excited to see the benefits unfold.”
