Our Climate leadership
We are proactive in advancing environmental stewardship in all of our operations and supply chain. Our achievements in resource conservation and greenhouse gas emissions mitigation continue to lead the industry since we began our climate leadership journey in 2007.
Our Collaboration on Climate
As a global corporate citizen, Caesars Entertainment is dedicated to collaborating with other organizations to advance industry-wide and overall corporate climate leadership. More recently, we collaborated with global organizations committed to business leadership and policy alignment on climate issues.
CDP: We partner with CDP (formerly known as Carbon Disclosure Project). Our efforts earned Caesars a spot on the CDP’s Climate A List. Just 9% of the corporations participating in CDP’s climate change program are awarded a position on the A List. We’ve also extended our efforts into engaging our supply chain by asking key suppliers representing the largest portion of our supply chain’s carbon footprint to privately respond to CDP’s survey about their climate impacts. We received 54 complete supplier responses to CDP this year. Of these, 71% of our suppliers responding to CDP’s survey said Caesars was their first (and only) customer to ask them to fill out the CDP survey. We are proud to be helping them move the needle on understanding their own climate impacts while helping us to understand our supply chain’s footprint.
Caesars Foundation supports Green Chips, a Nevada nonprofit supporting local businesses and low-income residents with energy retrofits and other conservation projects through inclusive connections among businesses, government and nonprofits.
Our Commitment to Science-Based Goals
Caesars is committed to science-based environmental goals in line with keeping global mean temperatures from rising beyond 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrialized levels. To date, Caesars has reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (metric tons CO2e) by 28.3% per 1,000 square feet of air conditioned space. We are on track to achieve our long-term target of 40% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in per 1,000 air-conditioned square feet by 2025.

Reducing both our energy use and greenhouse gas emissions are a large part of our climate strategy. We’ve made good progress, having reduced energy use by 23.4% per air-conditioned square foot and by 9% in absolute energy use since 2007. We’ve also reduced our GHG emissions by 28.3% per air-conditioned square foot since 2007. By 2025, we aim to reduce GHGs by 40% per air-conditioned square foot over 2007 levels, and we have the same target for energy use.
