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 Green Teams to improve their environmental profile and awareness among the employee base. Each Green Team 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.
