Identifying how to reduce our environmental footprint is the first step in deploying more sound environmental business practices. Building relationships and alliances that help us operate in a more sustainable way by identifying best practices, sustainably friendly vendors and aiding in defining how we measure our impact. In addition to our vendors, it is important to consider other relationships and how their green initiatives may align with our values in areas of charitable giving and sponsorships. Paper and energy consumption are the largest environmental impacts of the Hoosier Lottery. As part of our overall efforts to reduce our footprint, serve as a good corporate citizen, and reduce harm in all we do, we strategically partner with vendors who operate in an environmentally sustainable manner as a measure to reduce our environmental impact. We have deployed the following strategies:
In FY 2021, players initiated approximately 866 retail transactions per day from myPlayslip. Players used myPlayslip 316,263 times, an increase 67% percent from last year. Total wagers placed amounted to $2,141,933, and on average $6.77 per wager.
As digital playslip usage increases, paper usage will decrease. As part of our sustainability initiative, we track paper usage each year. In FY 2021, we used 567,026 pounds of paper for all Draw, Fast Play, and Scratch-off game production.
Since early 2011, the Hoosier Lottery headquarters has called The Buick Building home. The building is certified Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System. The building was designed and constructed to reduce human impact on the environment.
