Boosting ESG ratings

A long-term partnership yielding dramatic increases to ESG rating scheme scores and ultimately achieving industry leadership status.

Gamesys Group is a leading on-line gaming company that was listed in the FTSE 250 prior to acquisition by Bally’s Corporation in late 2021.

Gamesys contacted Rawstone shortly after listing on the London Stock Exchange to ask for help with producing a legislative compliant Annual Report that also showcased their sustainability credentials.

Rawstone worked with Gamesys on their 2019 Annual Report, producing all sustainability content including data, and liaising with the internal and design teams to effectively portray and integrate this into the report. Following this first report, we went on to support Gamesys with their website content, ESG rating scheme responses and future Annual Reports. Highlights from these activities include:

  • Achievement of Prime Status in ISS’ ESG Rating Scheme, an accolade awarded to only the very top performing companies in each sector.

  • Achievement of the sector-highest score in the Bloomberg ESG Rating Assessment and strong performances in FTSE4Good, MSCI and VE rating schemes.

  • Production of an extensive and investor-focused ESG key performance indicator report, downloadable from the company website and containing over 100 different metrics.

  • Annual Report 2020 aligned to legislative (Section 172(1) Statement; Non-Financial Information Statement) and best practice standards (GRI-Referenced; UN Sustainable Development Goals; UN Global Compact).

We continue to provide strategic ESG advice to Gamesys, and it’s now parent company, Bally’s Corporation, through our retainer programme.


“Rawstone Consulting has been and continues to be a key partner in the ongoing development and implementation of our ESG strategy. I would be happy to recommend Rawstone to any organisation looking for help and support with its ESG strategy.”
