Caesars Entertainment Corporation have announced their eighth annual Corporate Citizenship Report, entitled “People Planet Play” which covers 2016 and select content from the first half of 2017, detailing Caesars’ sustained progress and leadership across its many corporate social responsibility initiatives.
“PEOPLE PLANET PLAY”
People Planet Play is Caesars’ new platform that clearly communicates citizenship at all levels of the business and reaffirms Caesars’ commitment to its employees, communities, environmental excellence and Responsible Gaming.
In 2016 Caesars’ CodeGreen citizenship strategy again delivered industry-leading performance. One of only 30 companies in the U.S. to achieve Triple A scores in three CDP (formerly known as Carbon Disclosure Project) rankings; Caesars ranked A for climate change disclosure, A- for water disclosure and A- for supplier engagement (37 percent of Caesars’ top 150 suppliers submitted information to the CDP climate change database). Highlights of Caesars’ environmental progress in the U.S. include:
- -23 percent energy reduction per air-conditioned square foot since 2007.
- -35 percent greenhouse gas emissions reduction per air-conditioned square foot since 2007.
- -19 percent water use reduction per air-conditioned square foot since 2008.
- 43 percent of waste diverted away from landfills in 2016.
Caesars is committed to an absolute reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions by 30 percent before 2025 and commits to a 95 percent absolute reduction by 2050 (using 2011 as a baseline). With these goals, Caesars leads the gaming entertainment industry and aligns with the small number of corporations around the world that have publicly committed to science-based targets aimed to keep the temperature rise of the planet below two degrees Celsius.
