Caesars Entertainment Corporation has received recognition for its efforts to implement more sustainable and energy efficient business practices. The steps taken by the world's largest casino entertainment company may set an example for green MBA degree seekers who wish to work in a similar field.
The corporation has collaborated with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Green Building Council to develop sustainable goals, such as a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent by 2013.
CodeGreen, Caesars' sustainability initiative, focuses on ways in which the company's employees can reduce their use of natural resources, conserve energy, and promote reuse and recycling.
"We take pride in our sustainability efforts and the significant effort that has gone into becoming environmentally conscious at every level of our business," said Jan Jones, senior vice president of communications and government relations for Caesars Entertainment.
Through Travelocity, Travelife and Virgin Holidays, Caesars has received a total of 13 environmental awards and 13 sustainable tourism certifications. The company has received recognition as being an EPA WasteWise Gold Achievement New Partner.
