At Microgaming we’re lucky enough to call our home a UNESCO Biosphere - with the Isle of Man being
the only entire nation in the world to hold this designation. As a proud UNESCO Biosphere Partner, both
Microgaming and its people have pledged to protect natural resources, engage with local communities
through volunteering and fundraising efforts and make a positive environmental impact where possible.
The Microgaming PlayItForward programme demonstrates this continued commitment and has
supported a number of planet projects in recent years, including:
A Recycle Collect comfort fund, which gives individuals on
lower incomes free access to recycling collection services
The development of a micro forest in the south of the Isle of Man
Numerous Manx Wildlife Trust initiatives including a major seagrass research scheme
and several projects supporting the conservation of puffins, hedgehogs, and sharks
Championing the use of recyclable materials at major industry events such as ICE.
In 2020, 80% of our ICE stand was made from previous builds, with any remaining materials recycled
or donated to local causes - including our carpet, which was gifted to a local doggy day care charity!

a bid to achieve the award.
