OUTREACH & EDUCATION

The Green Advantage platform is dedicated to engaging and empowering MGM Resorts’ employees and surrounding communities to share in our sustainability efforts by committing to their environmental education at work and home.

Working closely with the Corporate Sustainability Division (CSD), our properties harness the strength of taskforces called CSR Councils to improve their environmental profile and awareness among the employee base. Each CSR Council is dedicated to implementing best practices, reflective of the five core focus areas. These passionate groups help instill our environmental values throughout our properties by hosting green fairs, education events, volunteer opportunities, and other unique projects.

  • In 2013, MGM Resorts' employee engagement and education program, Green Advantage, was the winner in the Las Vegas Business Press' 2013 Green Awards "Best Green Practices: Campaign" category. The program has launched to more than 18,000 employees.
  • Through 13 established property CSR Councils, comprised of diverse employees, we continuously develop and deploy best practices throughout all MGM Resorts' properties.
  • MGM Resorts has hosted the annual National Clean Energy Summit since 2011. The event has been attended by Vice President Joe Biden, former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton among other leaders in the field of clean energy.
  • Regional MGM Resorts properties showcase their commitment to sustainability annually, by participating in Earth Day and Earth Hour.
  • For the past five years, MGM Resorts has publicly reported carbon footprint data to the Carbon Disclosure Project.
  • 7,300 supervisors have successfully completed sustainability e-training.
  • 14 properties have been certified by TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders Program, two of which are the only Platinum rated resorts in Las Vegas.

Case Study
MY Green Advantage -
Companywide social effort driving education and engagement

In our commitment to engage and educate over 62,000 employees on the importance of sustainability, MGM Resorts launched MY Green Advantage. The program was first made available to Beau Rivage and Gold Strike Tunica employees, and is strategically planned to launch across all remaining properties by end of 2014.

MY Green Advantage is a fun, social application that challenges our employees to be greener at work and at home by encouraging them to complete actions which are designed to help build awareness about the impact of their choices. By earning badges and sccumulating points, employees are able to drive competition and Companywide challenges to foster sustainable lifestyles and habits.
