Caesars Entertainment garners national recognition for leadership in social and environmental responsibility CDC Gaming Reports · June 23, 2020 at 3:00 pm For the second consecutive year, Caesars Entertainment has been named to 3BL Media’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking for 2020. Evaluated against the companies of the Russell 1000 Index, Caesars ranked number 17 overall, as well as number one in the Consumer Services Industry for its environmental, social and governance (ESG) transparency and performance among public companies in the United States. The 100 Best Corporate Citizens ranking is based on 141 ESG transparency and performance factors in eight pillars. Caesars ranked number two on climate change and number eight on employee relations — two pillars that make up more than one-third of the evaluation criteria. The rankings recognize Caesars’ science-based targets to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from the company and throughout its supply chain. Caesars Entertainment has expanded on its work within the ESG space through various initiatives, including its longstanding partnership with Meals on Wheels America and the continuation of its Economic Equity Tour. Additionally, Caesars was recently named a 2020 honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. The award acknowledges Caesars as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the country based on four dimensions of its U.S. community engagement program: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities. “Caesars Entertainment prides itself on contributing a long-lasting, positive, societal impact to the communities where we operate,” said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. Caesars’ efforts in 2020 kicked off with the CodeGreen/Clean the World trip that brought eight employees from across North America to Las Vegas to distribute hygiene kits to homeless and food-insecure Las Vegans. The trip was the culmination of an annual contest rewarding exemplary employee engagement and dedication to the environment. In addition, Caesars established Caesars Cares, an assistance fund to support the company’s team members across the U.S. who suffer unanticipated hardships, including during the closure of Caesars Entertainment’s properties as a result of the COVID-19 public-health emergency.
