Publication of the European Lotteries CSR GUIDELINES coming soon

Lotteries in Europe also have a crucial role to play in sustainable business practices. In that respect, EL – and more specifically the CSR-Responsible Gaming working group – has been developing a set of guidelines inspired by ISO26000 that can lead and assist lotteries through this new and exciting path. These EL CSR guidelines will soon be available for download for EL members via the EL INFO HUB.

All over the world, more and more companies are integrating sustainable standards and policies in order to carry out their business in a way that will better manage their risks, anticipate consumer demand, secure access to needed resources, and strengthen their supply chains, while moving the world towards a sustainable and inclusive development path.

Global benchmarks such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and ISO26000 are useful tools for businesses when developing their own Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes.

Lotteries in Europe also have a crucial role to play in sustainable business practices. In that respect, EL – and more specifically the CSR-Responsible Gaming working group – has been developing a set of guidelines inspired by ISO26000 that can lead and assist lotteries through this new and exciting path.

These EL CSR Guidelines are considered an invaluable tool for lotteries willing to start with an internal assessment which will later help them define their CSR priorities and actions, and to better face the future and its many challenges.

The EL CSR Guidelines will soon be available for download via the EL INFO HUB.
