As online gambling grows, more energy is consumed. It's time to make a stand and accept the 'Bet On 0GREEN' challenge!
At CasinoAward.net we believe in a future where online gaming has little to no impact on the environment.
Our website, like all other gaming platforms, uses energy-consuming technologies and infrastructures to operate.
These include powerful computers, multiple servers, network services, office buildings and manpower. All of which can contribute to leaving a negative footprint on the world around us.
It is all too easy to think of environmental issues as "someone else's problem", but the truth is our industry is part of the problem. So, why not start facing it?
What is "Bet On 0GREEN" challenge?
CasinoAward.net has decided not to remain passive. Instead, we want to lead by example and take action, and it is this desire upon which the Bet On 0GREEN (an acronym for Bet On Online Gambling with REnewable ENergy) challenge was founded.
The name of this initiative was derived from a combination of green energy and the classic casino game roulette, in which a bet on the green zero is a popular choice among many players. However, protecting the environment is not a game of roulette.
Our concept is simple. The idea behind the 0GREEN project is to challenge all those who work within the online gaming sector to actively engage in tackling environmental issues making use of renewable energy. This can be done in any number of ways, ranging from donations to organisations that deal with environmental problems and renewable energy, through the adoption of hosting services which use "clean energy", or avoid using disposable plastic in offices.
To highlight CasinoAward.net's commitment to the Bet on 0GREEN project, we have already taken the first steps in helping to reduce the footprint of our website and make the world cleaner and greener. This has been done by making the first of a series of donations to institutions that we consider most worthy within the clean, renewable energy sector. We also rely on a hosting service that uses 100% clean energy.
Every journey starts with a single step. Our website is akin to a solitary player playing on a progressive jackpot slot - the jackpot needle moves very slowly. But, as more players join in, the progression really kicks into gear. This is why we are asking our peers within this industry to accept the Bet on 0GREEN challenge and help launch this initiative with us.
This is a call-out to all managers, operators and owners of online gambling information portals, sportsbooks, casinos, poker rooms and iGaming developers. You may be from the largest gambling portal on the internet or the newest small blog. This is a collective effort, which can make a big difference.
How to take part in the Bet on 0GREEN challenge
Are you ready to accept the challenge and raise our bet? Taking part is very straightforward. Here's how it works:
- Make a donation or documentable action that aims to reduce the environmental impact of online gaming.
- Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or via the form) and give us the details.
- After verification, we will publish (anonymously, if you prefer so) the proof of the action or deed on our Bet on 0GREEN page (provided that it meets the initiative criteria).
- Once published, we can supply upon request a small badge (or text link) which can be placed on one's website. In this way users browsing your site can verify the pledge you've made.

Why the Bet on 0GREEN initiative
Our team at CasinoAward.net is passionate about engaging the online gaming sector in the achievement of one fundamental goal: to safeguard our planet.
At a time when being aware of environmental issues is paramount, we feel that the definition of "responsible gaming" must extend its boundaries beyond the current meaning it is widely known for. All of us involved in this industry are in a position of responsibility and accountability. This applies to both players and the planet.
As the online gaming industry continues to grow and flourish throughout the world, those involved are able to take concrete actions. So, why not start with Bet on 0GREEN? While our initiative is focused on online gaming, we sincerely hope that it can provide inspiration to others on the World Wide Web, and this movement will dramatically reduce the impact we are having on the environment.
You may think that our vision of a renewable energy utopia for our industry is a little far-fetched, but we are convinced that we can make a difference. If casinos, poker rooms, bingo halls, sportsbooks and everyone else committed to the challenge of obtaining clean energy, it would benefit everyone today and for years to come. We only have one home, let's work together to protect it.
