As the commercial gaming industry grows, its corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment increases. Gaming industry professionals understand that their communities are just as great a part of their success as anything else. The American Gaming Association (AGA), as a leader in the gaming industry, takes care to monitor the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices of prominent industry actors. The AGA ESG page takes account of the industry's rules and those of big industry movers.
Pavilion Payments’ ESG practices, which the AGA listed on its website, reflect its desire to improve the organization and the community. Pavilion Payments established an Inclusion and Diversity Advisory Council (I&D) to provide insight into all Pavilion Payments' Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Pavilion Payments is projected to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 by lowering data center emissions and moving workloads to more efficient data centers. Pavilion Payments is also involved with pandemic relief efforts with the American Red Cross, Feeding America, United Way, and other organizations. In 2020 alone, Pavilion Payments donated nearly $7 million to organizations that have touched the lives of its employees.
Pavilion Payments also strongly promotes responsible gaming with the initiatives it supports and in its products themselves. Last year, Pavilion Payments partnered with the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) to participate in the UNLV International Gaming Institute's Research Collaborative on Responsible and Cashless Gaming Solutions. Pavilion Payments also includes responsible gaming features like cooling-off periods and pre-set configurable spending limits in its products. Patrons can also opt out of services through voluntary self-exclusion.
