Environment & Sustainability
As a global company, we play a key role in seeking sustainable solutions to help limit climate change. We recognise that even the smallest of actions today can have a lasting environmental impact in the future, for better or worse.
For this reason, The Stars Group is committed to consistently reviewing and reducing our potential impact on the environment, taking positive steps to lessen our environmental footprint and encourages our personnel, the communities in which we operate, both locally and globally, as well as our suppliers and vendors to do the same.
We take into account suggestions we receive from our customers, stakeholders and personnel, and have implemented numerous changes and initiatives throughout our business to reflect some of those suggestions.
Many of The Stars Group’s environmental and sustainability activities and initiatives are championed by locally based executive-sponsored working groups sometimes referred to as Green Stars. Green Stars are committed to driving a visible, environmentally conscious and proactive culture within The Stars Group with the goal of changing employees’ habits for the better, both within and outside of the workplace.
Green Stars works within the company to identify opportunities to improve sustainability as well as lessen any negative impact upon the environment or climate change by suggesting lasting and meaningful change.
Over the past 12 months, Green Stars has implemented numerous initiatives at various offices of The Stars Group around the world.
The Isle of Man offices have taken big steps to ensure that disposable plastic items are replaced with environmentally friendly substitutes. Every year, this results in a reduction of an estimated 26,000 fewer plastic bottles and 65,000 fewer single use plastic containers.
The London office has made reducing waste a high priority. They have removed almost all single-use plastic items from that office, resulting in a reduction in waste in this area from 92% to 36%. To encourage recycling, waste bins are no longer featured at each individual desk and vending machines now feature environmentally friendly alternative drinks. Many of The Stars Group’s employees in London have also been busy getting involved in urban beach clean ups at South Bank.
In Malta, while similar commitments to reducing plastic waste and supporting local community clean-ups and city cycling initiatives have been made, the modern design of the office means it also includes sophisticated water reusing features. Elsewhere, such as in Sofia, Dublin and New Jersey, The Stars Group has introduced initiatives such as removing or reducing the use of single-use plastic items, using environmentally friendly air conditioning, implementing office-wide recycling initiatives and providing charging stations powered by zero-energy emission power sources.
