Harrah's Entertainment, Inc.

Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc. is the first gaming company in the country to earn the Environmental Protection Agency’s highest award for environmentally aware “green” programs. The company was recognized for improvements at its four Atlantic City casinos, which, since 2002, have used more efficient lighting, non-toxic cleaning agents, energy-saving thermostats, eco-friendly refrigerants and better heating, cooling and ventilation systems. Harrah’s has eliminated the equivalent of more than 94 million pounds of carbon dioxide annually. Each year it recycles 50,000 gallons of cooking oil and 1.6 million pounds of cardboard. It uses waterless urinals (saving 30,000 gallons of water each per year) and has eliminated 1.1 million polystyrene beverage cups.
