MGM Resorts International has endorsed the United Nations’ CEO Water Mandate, a global initiative and coalition of hundreds of major companies making bold commitments to address water crises and challenges.
MGM Resorts is the first gaming company to endorse the mandate. “Given our environmental conditions, Las Vegas has long been innovative it its approach to water,” said MGM Resorts CEO and president Bill Hornbuckle.
“We are fortunate to do business in a place that has a world class water management system and hope to help others learn from successes here.
“The ongoing drought and effects of climate change in the western US are a wake-up call that we need to do more and we’re proud to endorse the CEO Water Mandate to not only share what we’ve learned in Las Vegas, but also help strengthen our commitments.”
One of the world’s most ambitious platforms for corporate water stewardship, the CEO Water Mandate mobilises business leaders to commit to meaningful action across six key elements and report annually on their progress.
Companies also identify and reduce critical water risks to their businesses, seize water-related opportunities and contribute to water security and UN Sustainable Development Goals. The CEO Water Mandate is endorsed by more than 230 companies spanning a range of industries and regions around the world.
