Caesars PalaceCaesars Entertainment’s sustainability report is the first report from a US company to be written in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines CORE level.

Caesars also submitted its report to GRI for the Materiality Matters check, and GRI confirmed that all materiality disclosures are correctly located in the report as required by the G4 guidelines.

According to the casino-entertainment company’s fourth sustainability report, Caesar’s achieved a total savings of approximately 750 million kWh since its benchmark year in 2007, representing an 8.5 percent absolute reduction in electricity and gas. It also diverted 24 percent of its waste from landfill, measured for the first time.

The company has set a goal to send at least half of its waste to someplace other than a landfill by 2020 and is launching a pilot program to send cigarette butts to a recycler that will use the leftover tobacco and the plastic in the filters.
