CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT RECOGNIZED WITH DOUBLE ‘A’ SCORE FOR TRANSPARENCY ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER SECURITY
Company Also Recognized as One of America’s Most Responsible Companies for Fourth Consecutive Year
Caesars Entertainment, the largest casino-entertainment company in the U.S., has been recognized for corporate transparency and performance on climate change and water security by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its annual ‘A List.’ Up from a ‘B’ on last year’s list, Caesars is one of a small number of companies that achieved a double ‘A’ out of nearly 15,000 scored.
A detailed and independent methodology is used by CDP to assess companies, allocating a score of A to D- 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.
“To continue to be recognized for our CSR and sustainability efforts is a tremendous honor,” said Heather Rapp, SVP of Corporate Social Responsibility for Caesars Entertainment. “It’s our priority to continue to grow and develop new practices to build upon Caesars’ long-standing commitment to corporate social responsibility and we’re thrilled to have made it on the very small double ‘A’ list for our transparency and commitment to fighting climate change and making our company and communities a better place.”
Caesars was also recently recognized as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek and Statista Inc. for the fourth consecutive year. America’s Most Responsible Companies were selected based on publicly available key performance indicators derived from CSR Reports, Sustainability Reports, and other reports as well as an independent survey. The KPIs focused on company performance in the environmental, social, and corporate governance areas, while the independent survey asked U.S. citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility.
Caesars Entertainment’s corporate social responsibility initiatives are developed around the Company’s PEOPLE PLANET PLAY framework which outlines priorities tied to the Company's most important business impacts on people, the community and the environment. Caesars sets goals within each of these priorities to help strengthen its overall CSR impact and contribution.For more information on Caesars Entertainment’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, please visit https://www.caesars.com/corporate-social-responsibility.
