MGM Resorts Receives Sustainability Award. The Alliance to Save Energy gives MGM their highest honor, the Galaxy award, at a special ceremony in D.C. this last week.
MGM received the award for the corporation’s dedication to energy efficiency across the world. Most notably, MGM resorts reduced energy use at their Las Vegas properties by over 420 million kWh, and reduced their annual carbon emission by 100,000 metric tons over the last year. All these successes are thanks to their Green Advantage sustainability plan. But MGM isn’t stopping there. They have recently announced their plans to join the U.S. Energy Department’s Better Buildings Challenge, a voluntarily pledge to reduce their building energy use by 20 percent over the next 10 years.
We know that our guests do not dismiss their environmental ideals when they pack their suitcases,” said Cindy Ortega, Chief Sustainability Officer for MGM Resorts. “Our 23 resorts and 62,000 employees are committed to providing memorable experiences for our guests, and that includes continuously implementing practices that reduce our environmental impact.”
