As the world's leading gaming event, ICE Gaming London is at the forefront of innovation and progress in the gambling industry. In the lead-up to this year's event, we at SG:certified, organised a webinar to showcase 10 organisations that are making waves in the push for a more sustainable and responsible gambling industry.

The "Consumer Protection Zone Preview" brought together experts from across the industry to discuss the key issues and solutions to making the gambling industry more sustainable. From safer gambling practices to responsible gaming initiatives, each of the 10 organisations shared their work and insights in 5-minute presentations.

Ewa Bakun from Clarion, opened the webinar with a presentation of the Consumer Protection zone, its goals and the fundraising work being done to support great charities.
