LONDON, July 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE:IGT) has announced the release of its 10(th) annual Sustainability Report, demonstrating its drive to create value globally, increase its socially responsible corporate citizenship, and report on its activities transparently.

"This 10th edition of the Sustainability Report shows how the Company has steadily created greater value for all its stakeholders," said Marco Sala, IGT CEO. "It demonstrates the way we fulfill our commitments toward our people and the communities where we do business, while putting our customers first as the global innovation leader in the gaming market."

This year's report has been reformatted with a chapter dedicated to IGT's stakeholder groups, including employees, customers, communities, and suppliers, with data showing IGT's 2016 achievements in generating value for each.

        program that provides disadvantaged students with access to computers.
        IGT employees enhance their local communities by volunteering their time
        and technology skills to create each computer lab. In 2016, the After
        School Advantage program launched 13 labs worldwide.
    --  Italy's Il Gioco del Lotto (Lotto game) supports the history of the
        country through the promotion of cultural projects such as the

        II in the church of San Pietro in Vincoli, Italy.

Growing With Our Supply Chain
IGT is currently establishing a due diligence system to identify the risks related to supply chain structure and operations, mitigate the risk of exposure in its supply chain, and undertake proper preventive actions to ensure human rights are protected, now and in the future.

Caring for the Environment
In 2016, IGT launched an internal web-based tool to collect environmental data from Company locations all over the world. This has systemized and harmonized data gathering, giving a more comprehensive overview of IGT's environmental performance.

The 2016 Report applies the latest Sustainability Reporting Standards issued by Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which are the most widespread international standards used by organizations to report their sustainability impact and performance. These standards require submission and analysis of comprehensive data regarding a wide range of corporate social responsibility indicators.
