EL Environmental Initiative

The EL Environmental Initiative emphasises the importance of sustainability in the lottery sector. It aims to to create a collective dynamic among members on concrete commitments in the environmental field, namely, the use of paper coming from certified sustainable forests for gaming materials (i.e., scratch tickets); and the regular monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., an action plan to reduce carbon emissions).


The following commitment form allows each lottery to commit to (a) specific environmental action(s):

Commitment to use of paper coming from certified sustainable forests (FSC, PEFC) for a substantial part of the gaming materials (including scratch tickets)
[* 50% of scratch game activity should at least be covered]
Commitment to realize a regular monitoring of GHG emissions
[* The carbon footprint evaluation should take place at least every two years]
