MGM Resorts International Ranked One Of The Top 100 Greenest Companies By Newsweek Magazine

Stocks in this article: MGM

LAS VEGAS, June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) has been listed among Newsweek Magazine's 100 most environmentally responsible companies in the United States, making it the third highest-ranked company in the hospitality industry. MGM Resorts earned the 82 nd spot on the list, up from 122 in 2012.

"Providing our guests with destinations that are mindful of their environmental impact and proactively driving change in business operations, goes hand-in-hand with our promise to deliver superior guest service," said Cindy Ortega, Chief Sustainability Office for MGM Resorts. "These results demonstrate that a greener business is a better business and we are a proud leader in implementing sustainable practices."

The Newsweek Green Rankings evaluate the world's largest publicly-traded companies using eight metrics that provide a transparent measurement of overall corporate environmental performance. The eight main factors considered included carbon, energy, water, waste, and the extent to which internal governance is geared towards sustainability.

"What we're seeing more and more is a direct link between corporate sustainability, reputation, and financial success," said Elijah Wolfson, senior editor at Newsweek. "Many of the world's largest public companies have begun to recognize that in order to be successful moving forward, they need to openly account for their environmental impact. The goal of Newsweek's Green Rankings is to add to and push for this type of accountability."

To assess companies on corporate reputation and environmental risks and litigation, Corporate Knights Capital partnered with RepRisk, the leading business intelligence provider on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks.

Green Rankings were created in 2009. MGM Resorts moved from #174 overall in 2010 to #157 overall in 2011 to #122 overall in 2012.
