The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has announced that it is extending the sign-up period for the ESG Code in the remote gaming sector.

Interested parties now have until Monday 19th March 2024 to confirm their participation in this initiative, aimed at promoting ethical, social and governance standards within the remote gaming sector. To register, click here.

The ESG Code of Good Practice for the remote gaming sector serves as an industry-specific reporting framework aimed at enhancing transparency and encouraging ESG reporting. Covering 19 ESG topics organised into Environmental, Social, and Governance categories, the Code provides a strategic roadmap for remote gaming companies to streamline their reporting efforts.

The decision to extend the sign-up period came after a recent session held by the regulator, part of a series of meetings entitled ‘MGA Meets’, where it invites licensees for an informative meeting focusing on the code of good practice.

The session, led by Kinga Warda, MGA’s chief officer – policy & international affairs, and Anna Grech, manager – international affairs & policy outreach, aimed to shed light on the ESG Code’s overview, benefits for participation, key elements, and a walkthrough of optional and core disclosures.

Participants engaged in an interactive Q&A session with a constructive discussion regarding the Code’s disclosures, the MGA ESG Code Approval Seal and the reporting tiers, among others.
