MGM Resorts International released its Annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report, a comprehensive publication that details the company’s corporate citizenship efforts across the 12 month span of 2016. 

The report describes MGM Resorts’ CSR philosophy, governance and culture, and summarizes MGM Resorts’ developments in the pillars of Diversity and Inclusion, Philanthropy and Community Engagement and Environmental Sustainability. Last year’s CSR efforts were a continuation and expansion of a commitment the company made officially in 2000, when MGM Resorts pioneered the gaming industry’s first formal diversity and inclusion initiative. Since then, the company’s CSR platform has grown and is the foundation upon which its culture is built.

“I’m so proud of our 75,000 employees, who are really leading the charge in CSR,” said Jim Murren, Chairman & CEO of MGM Resorts International. “They are the ones who volunteer their time to support our communities by feeding the hungry, cleaning up neighborhood blight, reading to school children, mentoring at-risk students, and much more. They help us to continuously integrate CSR best practices at all levels of our company’s operations. We firmly believe that our CSR initiatives make us both a better company and a better corporate citizen, as we endeavor to help build better communities.” 

A few highlights of 2016:

Diversity & Inclusion

As of December 31 minorities comprised nearly 69 percent of the company’s domestic workforce.  Forty-four percent of employees in the management ranks were women, while 43 percent of managers were minorities.

MGM Resorts earned top accolades for its diversity best practices according to leading benchmarks set by DiversityInc Magazine, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. 

Philanthropy & Community Engagement

A record number of the company’s domestic employees, 68.7 percent pledged contributions to the nonprofit MGM Resorts International Foundation for disbursement to support 1,400 nonprofit agencies. 

Employees at MGM Resorts companies – in Nevada, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan and Mississippi – volunteered 102,902 service hours, providing nonprofit organizations with the equivalent of $2.4 million in labor.

Environmental Sustainability 

The company completed expansion of the solar photovoltaic (PV) array on the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. At 8.3 megawatts, it covers 28 acres and is among the largest contiguous rooftop arrays in America. The expanded array supplies 26% of the resort’s electricity during peak production. 

The company replaced 960,178 light bulbs across its properties, retrofitting them with energy-efficient LED bulbs. This project is part of the company’s commitment to the Department of Energy’s Better Business Challenge.

The company’s green construction earned LEED Gold certification for T-Mobile Arena and The Park in Las Vegas, and the company’s newest resort, MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
