CSR Press Release

MGM Resorts International Recognized for Ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility Best Practices

Company Named a Finalist in Three Categories for PR News’ CSR Awards: CSR Professional of the Year, Employee Relations, and CSR/Green Event

Submitted by: MGM Resorts International

Categories: Ratings & Awards, Corporate Social Responsibility

Posted: Mar 05, 2014 – 03:11 PM EST

 

LAS VEGAS, Mar. 05 /CSRwire/ - MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) has been named a finalist for three prestigious Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) awards given annually by PR News.

The publication, which honors leading CSR and green campaigns nationally, has recognized MGM Resorts’ Chairman and CEO, Jim Murren, as a finalist for CSR Professional of the Year.

Additionally, “Inspiring Our World”, the innovative Vegas-style production designed to convey the company’s culture, core values and commitment to CSR to its 62,000 employees, was named a finalist for Employee Relations as well as CSR/Green Event. Other finalists in these award categories include NBCUniversal, Sprint and Viacom. Winners will be named at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on April 7, 2014.

“We are more than a corporate fixture in the communities in which we operate – we insist on being a vital, contributing member,” said Murren. “The health of the communities that host us is tightly linked with the ongoing success of our company. This honor is a celebration of all that our employees have accomplished.”

Finalists for the PR News CSR Awards were chosen by an expert panel that evaluated entries submitted by organizations participating in the award competition. The judging criterion included: creativity, innovation, sound planning, implementation and outcomes. Furthermore, organizations were judged based on the alignment of their programs with their strategic objectives, and on proven successes. 

MGM Resorts has shown a longstanding commitment to the fundamental principles of social responsibility. The three major initiatives comprising MGM Resorts’ social responsibility efforts are: Diversity & Inclusion, Philanthropy & Community Engagement, and Environmental Sustainability. Program highlights include:

Diversity & Inclusion

  • MGM Resorts was the first company in the gaming and hospitality industry to voluntarily adopt a formal diversity and inclusion policy.
  • Approximately 64 percent of the Company’s 62,000 employees are minorities. In the management ranks, about 43 percent of employees in the supervisory ranks are women, and 38 percent of employees in the supervisory ranks are minorities.
  • Since 2001, through its Supplier and Construction Diversity programs, MGM Resorts has spent a cumulative total of more than $3 billion with MWDBE suppliers and contractors (i.e., minority-owned, women-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises).

Philanthropy & Community Engagement

  • Since its founding in 2002 to 2013, the employee-driven MGM Resorts Foundation has donated more than $54 million to nonprofit organizations for the betterment of American communities.
  • MGM Resorts’ donation in 2013 of more than 461 tons of canned food to Three Square, the leading Las Vegas food bank, earned the distinction of the largest single company donation in the nonprofit organization’s history for the third year in a row.
  • Since 2011 employees have consistently donated more than 100,000 hours of community service each year and helped more than 850 nonprofit agencies meet community needs.

Environmental Responsibility

  • At more than 18M sf, CityCenter, hosting the Aria and Vdara hotels, is the largest LEED® Gold certified development in the world.
  • MGM Resorts has reduced electricity consumption by 120 million kWh per year, enough to power 10,450 homes each year.
  • Unmatched in the integrated resort industry, 15 company resorts have achieved the prestigious Green Key rating for environmental conservation from the largest sustainable operations certification body in the world, Green Key Global.
