PROVIDENCE – Gaming technology provider GTECH S.p.A. announced Monday the release of its 2012 Sustainability Report, an inventory of the company’s community efforts.
The report highlights GTECH’s initiatives to encourage social, environmental and economic responsibility, including responsible gaming and player-protection initiatives, community-outreach programs, energy-saving investments and transparent governance.
In 2012, GTECH continued to develop its responsible gaming initiatives by introducing new functions such as age controls, customer relationship management, player tracking and analytics tools in order to prevent underage play, prevent gambling addiction and support problem gamblers and their families.

In 2012, as part of its After School Advantage charitable program, GTECH installed 23 computer labs in communities where GTECh does business, bringing the company’s total to 194 computer labs worldwide since the program’s inception in 1999.
GTECH also donated $25,000 to the Empire State Relief Fund and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund in the wake of last year’s deadly storm.
Finally, in recognition of GTECH’s environmental sustainability initiatives, GTECH offices in Rome, Providence and Lakeland, Fla., received ISO14001:2004 certification, which indicates the organizations have an approved environmental management system.
