POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION TO POLICY
Caesars Entertainment’s Code of Commitment pledges to its employees, guests and the communities it operates in that it will honor the trust placed in them, and conduct operations responsibly. Under the Code of Commitment, we take a public stand on social and environmental issues that affect our guests, our employees and our communities. Our leaders are often in the public eye, or in the press, speaking out about issues that are close to our hearts. We participate in a range of other associations that help advance social causes. Some of the issues where we make our voice heard include:
We strongly support the increasing international focus on eliminating human trafficking – which involves commercial sexual exploitation, forced labor and debt bondage – and is one of the most serious and disturbing violations of human rights. The UN Guiding Principle on Human Rights (Respect, Protect and Remedy Framework) and the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons are among the leading international frameworks that we support. See Our Stance Against Human Trafficking for more information.
We support equality and equal rights for all LGBT persons. We have publicly supported legislation in favor of the LGBT community and protection of their rights, including same-sex marriage. We publicly support members of the LGBT community in our public speaking and in our marketing communications.
We take opportunities to reaffirm our public commitment to responsible environmental practices by corporations and we use our resources and efforts to drive change. We take part in initiatives led by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO). We signed the Ceres Climate Change Declaration in 2014, confirming our support for a call to action in public policy to address climate change.
Responsible Supply Chain
Guided by the principles of our Code of Commitment, Caesars has created its Responsible Supplier Statement to outline our reasonable expectations for the responsible and ethical business practices of our suppliers. See Responsible Supplier Statement for more information.
We support comprehensive immigration reform that both advances border security as well as streamlines the immigration process for those who are willing to work hard and complete the legal process. We have spoken out in favor of immigration reform in public policy forums.
We are in favor of healthcare reform advanced by the Affordable Care Act and the lowering of healthcare costs for U.S. citizens.
