Maltco Lot­ter­ies re­lease its Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity Pub­li­ca­tion

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

Maltco Lot­ter­ies, Malta’s na­tional lot­tery brand, has just pub­lished its Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity Re­lease (CSR Pub­li­ca­tion June ‘15 to June ‘16), which cov­ers four key pil­lars: Re­spon­si­ble Gam­ing, Re­tail, Sports and Char­ity.

Maltco is cer­ti­fied by the World Lot­tery As­so­ci­a­tion and by Euro­pean Lot­ter­ies for fully ap­ply­ing and main­tain­ing the Re­spon­si­ble Gam­ing frame­work. With this year’s theme – So­ci­ety Pos­i­tive – the pub­li­ca­tion high­lights Maltco’s com­mit­ment to the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Maltco has led the stan­dards in the lo­cal gam­ing in­dus­try to en­sure that ev­ery­one in­volved in its port­fo­lio of games is fully con­ver­sant with the prin­ci­ples of re­spon­si­ble gam­ing as ad­vo­cated by the com­pany.

It also con­trib­utes €50,000 to­wards the Re­spon­si­ble Gam­ing Fund and has un­der­taken an an­nual pro­gramme to train over 600 Maltco agents and their as­sis­tants on the sub­ject of re­spon­si­ble gam­ing. In the CSR re­lease, Maltco high­lights its work in pre­vent­ing un­der­age play and spon­sor­ing sport­ing events such as the Euro­pean Week of Sports and the Malta Chess Fed­er­a­tion, amongst many, as well as mak­ing con­sid­er­able do­na­tions to char­i­ties such as L-Ist­rina and the Com­mu­nity Chest Fund.

In ad­di­tion, the govern­ment’s Good Causes Fund ben­e­fits to the ex­tent of around €600,000 a year, be­ing the en­tirety of Maltco’s games un­claimed prizes. Maltco is also an ac­tive par­tic­i­pant in the cul­tural life of the is­land, spon­sor­ing con­certs of renowned lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional singers. It has also sup­ported busi­ness events such as the Mediter­ranean Lead­ers’ Fo­rum.

A spokesman for Maltco said that the rel­e­vance of cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity to the com­pany goes much fur­ther than re­spon­si­ble gam­ing. Maltco leads a vi­sion in Malta’s gam­ing in­dus­try – a vi­sion based on the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ple of be­ing a re­spon­si­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion, rather than just one with a re­spon­si­ble gam­ing pro­gramme.
