Scientific Games Elevates Andrew Jackson to Vice President of ESG
Scientific Games, a global leader in analytics, technology, digital, and retail games, recently made a significant announcement regarding the promotion of Andrew Jackson as the new vice president of environmental, social, and governance (ESG). In this new role, Jackson will be responsible for spearheading the development of strategic ESG initiatives for the company on a global scale.
Jackson’s primary focus as VP of ESG will be to strengthen various ESG projects and closely monitor their progress. He will also work to align these projects with the company’s global pillars, which aim to minimize environmental impact, empower employees and partners, and promote healthy play and lottery literacy, among other objectives.
The company’s shift to become an independent entity in 2022 allowed it to prioritize efforts toward ESG and make essential changes to its operations. Scientific Games is widely recognized as the largest developer and manager of instant lottery games, and it has also made a significant impact in the sports betting vertical through the provision of technology, loyalty programs, and solutions. Annually, the company’s partners generate billions of dollars through various charity programs while promoting responsible gambling.
Jackson brings extensive experience in ESG to his new role, having accumulated knowledge and skills in different sectors, including engineering, throughout his professional career. He has been with Scientific Games since 1999 and most recently held the role of director of quality, compliance, and R&D at the company’s instant game production and technology facility in the UK.
Dena Rosenzweig, chief legal officer for Scientific Games, expressed confidence in Jackson’s ability to lead the company into a new era of responsible growth with his wealth of experience and expertise in sustainability. She emphasized Jackson’s comprehensive background and deep knowledge of sustainability, predicting that under his guidance, the company’s ESG programs will successfully impact communities and industries across the globe.
In November, Scientific Games announced its support for the National Council on Problem Gambling’s annual Gift Responsibly campaign for the sixth consecutive time, demonstrating the company’s longstanding commitment to responsible gaming initiatives.
