Committed to Corporate Responsibility
Betfair continues to be willing to do things differently for the benefit of our customers. Innovation, transparency and fairness for the customer are the core values that continue to underpin the business. In recent years we have started to focus more on Corporate Responsibility (CR) and will continue to do so
in the future.
There is no one area of CR which is more important than any other. However, Betfair remains particularly proud of its track record in the areas of integrity and customer protection. With regard to integrity, in the last year Betfair has been one of the first operators to sign a permanent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), as well as continuing to strengthen its partnerships with the Professional Players Federation (PPF) and British Athletes Commission (BAC). The past year has also seen pioneering developments in the field of consumer protection with new Time Out options added for all products allowing customers to take even greater control of their gambling behaviour.
Corporate Responsibility Committee
The CR Committee is responsible for ensuring the company fulfils its four core values. The Committee meets at least four times a year and reviews Betfair's policies and advises the Board on all aspects of CR, including social, ethical and environmental matters.
Members of the CR Committee include:
- Gerald Corbett (Chair of Committee from March 2014)
- Lisa Hillier – Group HR Director
- James Midmer – Communication Manager
- Thomas Tuxworth – Head of Public Affairs (UK & Ireland)
- Fiona Russell – Chief Legal Officer
Fru Hazlitt chaired the Committee until March 2014.
