Today’s report demonstrates this commitment and provides measurable targets for the firm to strive for in the coming years. We are delighted to be part of Cryptomathic’s journey.”
The Cryptomathic sustainability report draws on various corporate data sources relative to the firm’s operations in 2016. It explains the company’s carbon footprint and causes, and documents staff and community initiatives already in place, before identifying targets to be pursued over the coming year.
