The Hoosier Lottery has chosen to use the precautionary principle in both its business development and risk management strategies.

PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE

The Precautionary Principle is a strategy to cope with possible risks associated with a product. It came to prominence at the 1992 Earth Summit. Simply put, the principle means "First, do no harm." The Hoosier Lottery has chosen to use the precautionary principle in both its business development and risk management strategies. Potential harm is always considered during the business development process, and this is demonstrated in the annual business plan where CSR is a key priority and placed at the same level as driving sales. In its risk management practices, the Hoosier Lottery has a board of senior managers from both IGT Indiana and the Commission that develops and implements responsible gaming programs. The purpose of these efforts is to mitigate harm while maximizing returns to good causes in the state of Indiana and the theory is at the center of all decision-making processes within the organization.

This CSR report covers July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017. Global Reporting Initiative fourth generation Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (GRI G4) were used to guide the Hoosier Lottery in developing a framework for social responsibility reporting and to guide the analysis and discovery of key aspects. To determine the main elements for the Corporate Responsibility Report, the Hoosier Lottery followed the process identified in the GRI-G4 Implementation Manual. This process led to identifying areas of importance called material aspects and boundaries. The Director of CSR & Compliance conducted an initial analysis, and draft graphics were created to present the analysis to a work group of key Hoosier Lottery management staff. The work group reviewed the initial analysis and provided recommendations and feedback.

The work group also collaborated to define and identify the material aspects and boundaries for each priority area. The material aspects were then presented to the Responsible Gaming Advisory Committee comprised of external stakeholders who regularly provide feedback on Hoosier Lottery programs and business practices. Feedback was noted, and final versions of the Aspect Analysis chart and Materiality Matrix were developed. Signifying either high, medium, or low in significance, the high aspects began to form the foundation of the report.
