The Climate Pledge was formed by technology gians Amazon, with over 200 businesses worldwide signing up to the agreement.

Lottoland commissioned the global consulting firm Tunley Engineering to reduce its CO2 emissions in an attempt to become a more climate neutral business.

Lottoland CEO Nigel Birrell said: “We are delighted that we have achieved climate neutral status and signed the Climate Pledge.

“We are thus fulfilling our claim of assuming social and ecological responsibility for our customers and employees. We are proud to take on a leadership role in climate protection and hope that many companies will follow our example.”

Lottoland recently became a founding member of the All-In Diversity Project, designed to promote equality and inclusion in the gaming industry.

“We are happy that we can welcome another company, Lottoland, to the Climate Pledge,” said Sally Fouts, who is responsible for the Climate Pledge at Amazon. 

“Businesses have contributed to climate change, but deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions can stabilize rising temperatures. Therefore, joint action by businesses around the world is urgently needed.

“The signatories of the pledge are in a unique position to address the challenge of climate change and help create the low carbon economy of the future. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together over the next two decades.”
