UK – Flutter sets out inaugural sustainability strategyBy William - 28 February 2022
Flutter Entertainment has announced the launch of its inaugural sustainability strategy, the Positive Impact Plan.
The plan identifies three key areas of focus to create global goals that support the company’s overall corporate strategy:
1) By 2030, 75 per cent of active online customers globally will be using one or more Play Well tools, with over 50 per cent using one or more tools by 2026.
2) By 2030, have teams that are representative of the locations in which Flutter operates through a comprehensive DE&I strategy supported by clear stepping stone goals.
3) By 2030, improve the lives of 10 million people using the power of sport and play, the skills of colleagues, and the reach of the Flutter brand.
Commenting on the launch, Peter Jackson, Chief Executive, said: “Our Positive Impact Plan is a comprehensive and challenging strategy which demonstrates that Flutter is setting the agenda for positive change.
“We are committed to contributing positively to our customers, colleagues and the communities in which we operate. This plan builds on the strong foundations laid by each of our divisions, leveraging our global scale and positioning us at the forefront of meaningful change.
“During 2021 we further enhanced our safer gambling measures across the Group, investing over £45m to support and promote safe play across our global operations. Continuing to show leadership in safer gambling is critical for the sustainability of our business and I believe that the goals we are setting out today as part of our new Play Well strategy will materially enhance our global customer protections and serve as a framework for the wider industry.
“Flutter’s leading brands are deeply embedded in communities and homes all over the world. Our approach reflects this and will continue to evolve over the coming years in line with shifts in our markets, technological
developments, and continued collaboration with our stakeholders.
“The initial response from colleagues has been fantastic and I couldn’t be prouder of their passion and commitment to ensure that we continue to lead betting and gaming into the future.”
