MGM Resorts International Announces Social Impact and Sustainability Report

BCW Member MGM Resorts International recently announced the publication of its 2023 Social Impact and Sustainability Report detailing the company’s continuing and steadfast commitment to its Social Impact and Sustainability principles of embracing humanity, protecting the planet, and building a legacy for generations to come.

The report highlights strategies, programs and performance focused on creating a more sustainable future and making a positive impact on the lives of employees, guests, and communities.

“Our people are the foundation of our company and its enduring heritage and culture,” said Jyoti Chopra, Chief People, Inclusion and Sustainability Officer. “It is through the steadfast commitment of our teams at all our properties and locations that we have been able to make great strides in environmental sustainability, philanthropy and diversity, equity and inclusion in 2023.”

Highlights of the report include the company’s culture of MGM Resorts employees giving and volunteering with more than 82,000 volunteer hours donated and more than $20 million in collective grants and charitable contributions to hundreds of nonprofit organizations.

Initiatives include the use of innovative technologies for advancing water stewardship through collaboration with the Southern Nevada Water Authority, WaterStart and the Las Vegas Grand Prix. There is also a recognition from the U.S. Department of Energy for achieving energy savings goals as a partner in the Better Buildings Challenge.  

As a member of the MGM Resorts portfolio, Empire City Casino is equally committed to social impact and sustainability initiatives that benefit the greater New York region, including communities throughout Yonkers, Mount Vernon, the Bronx and beyond.

Each year, numerous charitable organizations receive grants and in-kind donations demonstrating hundreds of thousands of dollars to support programming in the company’s focus areas and philanthropic pillars of public education, food insecurity and workforce development. 

Community volunteerism is a paramount focus at MGM Resorts, with the company goal set to exceed 1.12 million employee volunteer hours by 2025, achieved in early 2023. Empire City team members have volunteered over 2,000 hours to local nonprofit organizations since joining the MGM Resort portfolio in 2019.

“Social impact and stewardship are at the forefront of what we do at Empire City in New York, and MGM Resorts globally,” said Taryn Duffy, Vice President of Public Affairs at Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts. “We are colleagues, neighbors, and friends, and our commitment to community is unwavering.”
