LAS VEGAS, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its longstanding commitment to sustainability and its communities, MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) has launched a new corporate social responsibility (CSR) website today – Earth Day.  Branded to coalesce with MGM's powerful CSR initiative, "Inspiring Our World", the website details the Company's advancements in diversity, community engagement and environmental responsibility. It is accessible at: www.mgmresorts.com/csr.

"Our new CSR website serves as a great forum to engage guests, customers and partners in our efforts to 'Inspire our World,'" said Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. "Customers, today, are interested not only in the exceptional service a business provides, but also whether it serves the community and planet with the same enthusiasm. We want them to know that we are passionate about both."

Since the Company's founding, MGM Resorts has shown a powerful commitment to the fundamental principles of social responsibility.

Serving as an online portal for regular MGM updates, the new website will chronicle the latest in Company CSR news, published reports and achievements. Highlights featured include:

Diversity & Inclusion – MGM Resorts has increased and maintained the overall representation of women (more than 40 percent) and minorities (more than 30 percent) in the diversity profile of its management team for more than half of the past decade. Additionally, during the decade following the creation of its Supplier and Construction Diversity programs in 2001, the Company spent a cumulative total of nearly $3 billion with minority-owned, women-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises. MGM Resorts has been recognized among the Top 50 Companies for Diversity by DiversityInc Magazine; 40 Best Companies for Diversity by Black Enterprise Magazine; Best Companies for Latina Employees by Latina Style Magazine; and the "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality" by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

Philanthropy & Community Engagement – Since 2002, The MGM Resorts Foundation has donated nearly $50 million to nonprofit organizations. Additionally, Company employees logged more than 113,000 volunteer hours last year to help more than 850 nonprofit agencies meet community needs. In light of its volunteer efforts, MGM Resorts earned the Nevada Governor's Points of Light Award earlier this year.

Environmental Sustainability – Over the past five years, MGM Resorts has achieved a total savings of more than 300 million kilowatt hours of electricity, 500,000 MMBtu of natural gas and 1.9 billion gallons of water; and increased its recycling rate by more than 420 percent. Additionally, MGM Resorts' properties have achieved six LEED ® Gold certifications and 15 Green Key Global Eco-Ratings; at more than 18 million square feet, CityCenter is the largest LEED ® Gold certified new development in the world. MGM Resorts is recognized as the highest ranking company in the casino resort industry among Newsweek Magazine's most environmentally responsible companies.
