Scientific Games has joined a green citywide initiative in Montreal, planting 75 trees at its instant game production centre in the city.
Expanding on its environmental targets, the firm collaborated with the Société de verdissement du Montréal métropolitain (Soverdi), a non-profit group that aims to plant 500,000 trees on the island of Montreal by 2030.
Soverdi’s long-term strategy is to implement planting strategies in urban areas to increase the urban greenery to ‘improve the quality of life’ of Montreal residents.
“Protecting the environment remains a central focus for Scientific Games, including at our Montreal facility, and we are very proud to take part in this tree planting initiative which aligns with our ongoing environmental efforts and contributes to a better environment for all,” said Marc-André Doyon, Regional VP of Operations in Canada for Scientific Games.
“We are continually looking to improve the ways we operate to maintain our position as an industry leader, while focusing on socially responsible initiatives that benefit our employees, our customers and our local community.”
Recently, SG produced the world’s first 100% recycled lottery instant games out of its Montreal production centre, acting upon its environmentally friendly agenda.
Furthermore, SG uses paper for game production that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, ensuring that it is responsibly sourced.
The firm’s Montreal centre was built in 1992 and currently employs 240 people who reside in the greater Montreal area.
