Bet On 0GREEN is an acronym for Bet On Online Gambling with REenewable Energy. This initiative has been created by CasinoAward.net - a relatively new informational website focusing on the online gaming industry. Its ultimate goal is to develop a renewable energy culture and respect for the environment within the igaming sector.
The aim of the project is to challenge all the protagonists of the igaming world so that they proactively commit to undertaking a path of renewable energy usage. By everyone displaying their appreciation of our glorious planet, there is great optimism in achieving the noble goal of ‘zero impact’ for the entire online gambling ecosystem.
It's far easier than many imagine to create change. Simple actions, such as making a donation to an organisation or a project that is promoting energy sustainability are strong first steps. Going further, the use of infrastructure and servers powered by energy obtained from renewable sources, and reducing the consumption of disposable plastic in offices are other direct actions companies can take.
CasinoAward.net has already pledged its commitment to the initiative by choosing a "100% green" hosting service, in addition to making the first of a series of donations in favor of sustainable energy development.
With that said, regardless of how committed a small independent company is, the cold hard truth of acting alone is not enough to make any sort of dramatic change. It’s for this reason the Bet On 0Green challenge was launched to invite all the other members of the igaming industry. The objective is to raise the stakes on the bet made by the CasinoAward.net team. As the bar moves higher, and with a collective industry effort, it is possible to become carbon free and transform the world around us.
Bet On 0GREEN is open to everyone although the challenge is primarily looking at the gaming sector: casino operators, poker rooms and bookmakers, as well as software developers, managers of information and comparative portals related to gambling.
The team behind this project firmly believes in its potential. With a cumulative effort, a positive impact in addressing the climate crisis is attainable, while improving the global reputation of the online gaming sector and creating new marketing opportunities as a side effect. This is a win-win-win combination.
