Environmental Sustainability

Commitment to Environmental Stewardship

The Caesars Code of Commitment governs the conduct of our business. It’s a public pledge to our employees, guests, and communities that we will honor the trust they have placed in us.

Environmental stewardship is one of the four pillars of Caesars Code of Commitment and represents our promise to preserve the planet for current and future generations. Caesars employees and guests expect us to behave responsibly toward the environment; our ability to fulfill customer expectations, engage employees, leverage their ideas, and harness their energy improves our business and environmental performance.


  • We invest in sustainable practices that increase energy efficiency and water conservation.
  • We commit ourselves to measurable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • We promote recycling and waste reduction at all our properties.

CodeGreen: Caesars’ Environmental Sustainability Strategy

CodeGreen is our organization-wide, multi-year strategy to identify, monitor, measure, assess, manage and reduce our material impacts on the environment. This consistent, structured, data-driven and disciplined environmental program leverages the passion of our employees, as well as engages our guests and suppliers. Since the start of our CodeGreen environmental sustainability strategy seven years ago, we have made great strides in improving our environmental impacts across a range of multi-year targets.

Driven by Data

CodeGreen environmental data is collected by property, collated monthly, and reported to all property managers and company management. At the property level, managers review results with their teams and prioritize actions to improve performance. There is more than a little competitive spirit between properties, so in addition to a commitment to efficient operations and a passion for protecting the environment, property managers are encouraged to challenge their peers to do better. This works well: the CodeGreen Scorecard is well-publicized with the company, with the leading and laggard properties clearly identified, forming the basis for action planning.

“Caesars Entertainment has made great strides in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Their commitment to reducing carbon pollution demonstrates that efforts to address climate change are repaid by saving money and energy, while supporting more livable and resilient communities, and a healthier, better protected environment.”
Janet McCabe, acting assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation
