Caesars Made It to ‘America’s Most Responsible Companies’ List Second Year in a Row

Article by : Helen Feb 11, 2021

Caesars Entertainment can add one more award to the long list of its accolades: Newsweek put the company on its ‘America’s Most Responsible Companies 2021’ list for the second time in a row since the list was established in 2020. This year, Caesars went up 42 positions, from 146th in 2020 to its current 104th spot. The corporation also got the highest score among its competitors in the Entertainment, Leisure & Dining industry.

America’s Most Responsible Companies is an annual list composed by Newsweek in partnership with Statista. It judges companies based on three scores: environmental, social, and corporate governance. The authors of the list selected the 2,000 largest publicly listed companies, filtered the ones that published a Corporate Responsibility Report or a similar document, and analyzed their performance in the three categories mentioned above that composed the general score. The study also involved surveying 7,500 people across the United States on their opinion about the candidates’ corporate social responsibility. The survey results also weighed in on each company’s final score.

“We often talk about the power our incredible Team Members have to create guest experiences that drive our lasting successes at Caesars Entertainment,” said Tom Reeg, Caesars Entertainment’s CEO, in a comment on the company’s placement on the list.

That same power is amplified in their commitment not just to guests, partners, and the environment, but to each other and to the communities in which we live and work. It’s through the steadfast work, compassion, and generosity of dedicated Caesars Team Members that we can make a positive impact that continues to grow each year.

This is not the only award Caesars Entertainment can boast of receiving this year. The company also kept its now 14-year streak of getting a 100-percent score from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index. Apart from a perfect result, the entertainment and gaming empire was also officially granted the title of the “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality” by the same organization.

All of this is thanks to the company’s policies and practices that protect LGBTQ employees and create a safe and productive working environment for them. These policies include “workplace protection, inclusive benefits, supporting an inclusive culture, and responsible corporate citizenship.”

CDP, a not-for-profit charity focused on the environment and climate change, also recognized Caesars Entertainment’s leadership in corporate sustainability and awarded it with two spots on the organization’s “A-List” for addressing climate change and water security. Caesars was among the very few corporations that got a double “A” score, all thanks to its dedication to cut down on Scope 1 and 2 emissions and reduce water consumption.

Finally, Caesars has also made it to the “Top 35 Corporation Stars”, a list established by the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC) to acknowledge and honor the companies that helped the association on its way towards becoming a “leader in the sector.”

Caesars Entertainment gives back to the community using its private fund – Caesars Foundation – which awards grants of $5,000 or more for various programs and projects dedicated to helping the elderly to “live more fulfilling lives,” promoting “a more sustainable world,” and making the local communities’ lives better. The fund is a long-term partner of Meals on Wheels America and Clean the World; it also co-hosted National Social Isolation Summit online in 2020 to help the elderly deal with loneliness caused by social distancing measures.
