Inaugural sustainability award presented to BCLC at Global Lottery Forum13/07/2015
BCLC has been recognized by La Fleur’s magazine for its work in the area of corporate social responsibility. The inaugural sustainability award was presented to Kevin Gass, BCLC’s vice president of lottery gaming, at La Fleur’s Global Lottery Forum last month at Ryerson University.
“I am proud to accept La Fleur’s first sustainability award on behalf of BCLC for our dedication in the area of corporate responsibility, which is the cornerstone of our business,” said Gass. “A focus on playing it right allows BCLC to be a positive catalyst economically, socially and environmentally.”
“BCLC was recognized for creating a social responsibility charter, Playing It Right, to show its commitments in each of its four corporate goals—players, people, public and profit,” said Terri Markle, Publisher, La Fleur’s Magazine. “BCLC is a leader with its stakeholder engagement, including such CSR programs as Voice of the Customer, live customer support on PlayNow.com and social media monitoring.”
Seven global lotteries received awards in areas of responsible gambling, environmental programs, and corporate social responsibility.
