The audacity of Play'n GO - Double Standards Supported by the CEO
Play'n GO, a Swedish-based casino entertainment provider, has become a signatory of The Climate Pledge, a move that may be seen as a calculated attempt to bolster its image. This decision places Play'n GO in the company of over 400 other businesses, all seeking to present themselves as environmentally responsible.
The Climate Pledge, initiated in 2019, calls for participating companies to reduce their carbon emissions and achieve net-zero emissions by 2040, a decade earlier than the Paris Agreement's target of 2050. Play'n GO, however, has set a more ambitious goal, declaring its intent to reach The Climate Pledge's targets by 2030, positioning itself ten years ahead of its peers.
As part of this commitment, the Swedish provider will now regularly measure and report its greenhouse gas emissions. Play'n GO claims it will implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement, emphasizing efficiency improvements, renewable energy adoption, material reductions, and more.
Furthermore, the company pledges to neutralize any remaining emissions with additional offsets, seeking to achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions.
By joining The Climate Pledge, Play'n GO joins a community that includes well-known companies like Amazon, IBM, VISA, and Uber, a move that could potentially enhance its reputation.
Vanessa Arenram, Play'n GO's director of CSR, highlighted the importance of sustainability to the company but fell short of explaining how this decision aligns with their core business practices. The move to sign The Climate Pledge appears as an attempt to capitalize on green initiatives, possibly raising questions about its authenticity.
The Audacity and Double Standards
While implying to care about environment, there is zero change to the office policy. Why in order to protect the environment, they stop washing and using heating in winter and also to save water by flushing the toilet once a day? Nothing as such, of course. Instead, Play’n Go does not worry about the players and allows to reduce the RTP of the slots every time. Any casino can do it.
While Play'n GO asserts its commitment to a "safe, sustainable future within the gambling industry," it remains to be seen whether this signing is merely a symbolic gesture or indicative of meaningful change within the company. In other news, Play'n GO recently renewed its partnership with the Växjö Lakers, a local sports team, raising questions about its commitment to global environmental initiatives.
