William Hill Goes Green: News |

William Hill Joins the Carbon Neutral Generation

William Hill has committed to a new green initiative that will help it become a carbon-neutral business over the next five years.

To help meet its targets, the online and retail bookmaker, casino, and bingo operator has just changed energy suppliers to take advantage of a 100% renewable energy tariff offered by Total Gas and Power.

The new three-year business energy contract is expected to help the company save around 61,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, which equates to a more than 16,660 one-way flights from Las Vegas to London or 38,000 cars in the UK.

Total Gas and Power generates all of its energy from natural resources such as sea, wind, and sun while its gas is produced through the recycling of food and farm waste.

David Medori, who is Hill’s Chief Procurement Officer, says that further green initiatives will help it meet “aggressive targets” in CO2 reduction.

It is already rolling out smart meters in 2,000 UK betting shops which it hopes to complete by the end of the year.

In addition, Mr Medori will be chairing a new Environmental Management Forum that will help to introduce other environmental initiatives and ensure that they are included on both the company’s and its board of directors’ agendas.

The Chief Procurement Officer says that William Hill’s 2020 CO2 targets were also met after it succeeded in lowering its emissions by around 50% compared to the previous year.

A Monitoring and Targeting program will be introduced this year to help the company drive further CO2 emissions down during 2021 and 2022.

This week, William Hill also announced that it has launched a new programme called Lead IT Lady in Poland that aims to level the playing field between men and women in IT leadership roles through a variety of expert-led training modules.
