For Lottotech, Corporate Social Responsibility means working cooperatively with our customers, partners and community members to ensure our success as a company is measured not only by revenue, but by our contribution to society and the environment.
We understand that Corporate Social Responsibility needs to be a driving force behind our corporate strategy so that it factors into every aspect of our business.
That is why CSR is the overriding principle that guides us in everything we do and it’s based on three pillars: social, economic and environmental responsibility.
“At Lottotech, we believe that in today’s economy we are not only accountable for profitability but we have an obligation towards our stakeholders; shareholders, players, employees and partners, to fulfill our social and environmental commitments. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) vision is to contribute to the sustainable development of our society by reinforcing the trust that people of Mauritius places in us, and making a real difference in our community. Furthermore, the nature of our business calls for a particular attention to our business strategies where responsible gaming forms an integral part of our CSR program. Consequently, Lottotech is engaged to keep its promises towards the community of which we are part and make Mauritius a more sustainable and healthier country” – Michelle Carinci, C.E.O. of Lottotech Ltd.
