Environmental organization CDP adds MGM Resorts to its prestigious A List
Las Vegas, December 14, 2022 – MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) (“MGM Resorts” or the “Company”) has been recognized for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change and water security by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on the organization’s annual A List.
“This marketplace recognition by CDP is a reflection of our ongoing strategic prioritization of sustainability across our business operations and supply chain," said Jyoti Chopra, Chief People, Inclusion and Sustainability Officer at MGM Resorts. “We are fiercely committed to corporate environmental leadership and continuing our efforts around water stewardship and the fight against climate change.”
Based on data reported through CDP’s 2022 Climate Change and Water Security questionnaires, MGM Resorts is one of 57 companies to achieve a double-A rating on climate change and water security, out of more than 15,000 scored. A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess companies, allocating a score of A to D-minus, based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks, and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets. Those who do not disclose or provided insufficient information are scored an F.
“Environmental transparency is the first vital step towards a net-zero and nature-positive future. In a year of ever-increasing environmental concerns around the world – from extreme weather to unprecedented losses to nature – the need for transformational, urgent and collaborative change is more critical than ever,” said Dexter Galvin, Global Director of Corporations and Supply Chains at CDP. “As CDP continues to raise the bar on what qualifies as climate, forests and water leadership, we hope to see the ambitions and actions of companies on the A List – and those wanting a place on it – do the same.”
MGM Resorts is focused on creating a more environmentally sustainable future, recognizing that climate change presents significant risks and opportunities to business, people and the planet. The Company has adopted a culture of innovation to reduce emissions and continues to take bold steps towards climate leadership in the industry.
