Microgaming's headquarters was one of the Isle of Man's first privately held office buildings to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' sustainability rating.
We were invested in achieving certification for our new building to develop and establish a more sustainable environment and encourage staff to help create a greener future. Our aim is to focus on managing the building’s life cycle by supporting the ongoing health and wellbeing of our growing workforce.
Passionate about the environment, our Eco Warriors are on a mission to guide our business and community to a greener future by raising awareness, taking action and making a positive difference.
Launched in 2016, our Eco Warriors employee-led scheme has tackled a number of green initiatives including replacing plastic bottled water with filtered taps and fizzy water stations, reducing desk waste and championing our new waste management system.
For the past two years, Microgaming has made a conscious effort to lower the waste produced during ICE London, the online gaming industry's largest trade show.
As part of this PlayItForward initiative, we vowed to continue our eco-friendly pledge by reusing more than 75% of our exhibition stand from ICE 2019, as well as recycling and donating materials to help protect our planet, while benefiting those in need. In 2020, 80% of the stand has been reused from previous builds and the carpet will be donated to a good cause for a second time.
Charging the future.
At Microgaming HQ, PlayItForward has invested in electric bikes for staff to use to run errands or simply go for a ride around the block! Stored in the underground car park with a dedicated cycle lane, each bike can reach between 30 and 140 power assisted miles, and comes with locks and saddlebags, and have front and rear lights for the dark days of winter.
In 2019, we collaborated with Farmyard Studios to create a bespoke eco basking shark, which was donated to Beach Buddies IOM to benefit the Isle of Man community and bring plastic recycling to the forefront at four local events.
Unveiled at The Southern Agricultural Show, the basking shark is already an award-winning project that is poised to settle into its new home soon at Peel breakwater.
