We have developed a strategic approach to greening the supply chain of our properties and corporate offices, from production, to delivery, to the use of the product and disposal. This means we are considering the entire lifecycle of the products that we buy and use every day, and identifying ways to reduce the environmental impacts of each portion of the cycle. In order to make smarter buying decisions, MGM Resorts considers raw materials, logistics and the overall performance of a product. This comprehensive approach encourages positive collaboration between our resorts and suppliers. Fostering these relationships not only helps MGM Resorts reduce its environmental footprint, but promotes the adoption of more sustainable processes and products among our suppliers.
One example of how we use sustainable products throughout Food and Beverage venues is Della's Kitchen at Mandalay Bay, a newly remodeled restaurant, which features local and seasonal ingredients, bamboo furniture and glassware made out of reclaimed materials.
MGM Resorts engages service and product providers in sustainability by establishing environmental standards during the bidding and contracting process. This best practice promotes our sustainable supply chain, while supporting the environmental platform of our partners.
