Fifteen MGM Resorts International Properties Awarded Top Green Key Global Eco-Ratings For Conservation

Stocks in this article: MGM

Green Key member properties are listed at www.greenkeyglobal.com, a valuable resource for environmentally conscious travelers. Green Key rankings are recognized by major travel services including AAA, Travelocity and Expedia.

"MGM Resorts has been a highly engaged Green Key partner since the program was introduced in the United States," said Tony Pollard, Managing Director of Green Key Global.  "It is clear from how each property performed on the updated Green Key self-assessment that MGM Resorts is committed to continuous improvement in its sustainable operations, not simply content to rest on its laurels."

Under the leadership of MGM Resorts Chief Sustainability Officer Cindy Ortega and the Company's sustainability division, the Company continues to expand its best practices to use resources more efficiently, reduce construction impact, minimize waste, manage supply chains and increase awareness.

"The enhanced designation reflects that our standards and best practices in environmental sustainability remain consistent throughout the company and continue to be improved. This further solidifies our commitment and responsibility to improving our environmental impact," said Ortega. 

In 2009, ARIA Resort & Casino was awarded LEED Gold certification for sustainable design and construction from the U.S. Green Building Council.  In 2011, MGM Resorts was awarded 12 Green Key Hotel rankings for designation of green business operations. In 2012, Green Key Global's Meetings Program awarded the "5 Green Keys" rating to the meetings and convention spaces within Bellagio, ARIA, Mandalay Bay and MGM Grand Las Vegas. For the past three years, MGM Resorts has been listed among Newsweek Magazine's 500 most environmentally responsible companies in the United States.
