Entain has announced that it has achieved the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon, reducing CO2 year on year for its UK operations and reflecting its ongoing commitment to sustainability through governance, carbon accounting, and carbon management.

The betting and gaming group began working with the Carbon Trust in 2020 in a bid  to advance its efforts to reduce its environmental impact and verify its emissions disclosures. 

Having achieved the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon in the UK, Entain says that it will continue to focus on work with the Carbon Trust to certify its global operations.

Jette Nygaard-Andersen, Entain CEO, said: “We all need to play our part to address the challenge of climate change and at Entain, we are committed to leading the industry to help build a sustainable future.

“Achieving the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon is an important recognition of the progress we have made to date and we are determined to continue our efforts to minimise our environmental impact.”

The Carbon Trust is an international climate change and sustainability consultancy with the mission to accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy by helping governments, businesses and organisations to reduce carbon emissions and achieve greater resource efficiency.

Hugh Jones, managing director at the Carbon Trust Advisory, added: “By achieving the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon, Entain has demonstrated both a commitment and an effective strategy to deliver on its decarbonisation journey. We hope this will encourage its industry peers to follow suit and build a net-zero future.”
