Madison, WI – August 27, 2009 – Leonardo Academy announces the appointment of Russell Chudd, of International Game Technology (IGT) to the Sustainable Gaming Standards Committee.

About the Committee - The Sustainable Gaming Standards Committee’s goal is to help the gaming industry identify and communicate the sustainability parameters of their products and services and to allow industry purchasers to identify their sustainability preferences when purchasing gaming equipment and services. The committee has been charged with developing a comprehensive framework and common set of sustainability metrics that assess environmental, social, and economic performance at all levels of the gaming industry supply and delivery chain and encourage continuous improvement in overall sustainability performance. Leonardo Academy, a non-profit organization that works to advance sustainability, is providing facilitation and process support for the standard development initiative, under the rules of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
