Wynn Resorts Sets Environmental Goals

Wynn Resorts officials have announced the company’s commitment to fight climate change in the coming years.

“A truly great company, one founded on the belief that excellence is not just an aspiration but a necessity, and operating in today’s socially and environmentally fraught world, is called to a higher standard: to take responsibility, not just for our decisions, but for the all future impacts of those decisions,” Wynn CEO Matt Maddox said in a report on the Las Vegas-based firm’s environmental, social and governance policies.

Wynn will reduce or offset all carbon dioxide by 2050 and increase renewable energy use to 50 percent of consumption by 2030, reported the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“Decision-making with careful consideration to the impacts 20 or 30 years from now isn’t just essential, it’s an existential imperative,” Maddox said. “That is what the future demands of us.”

The Wynn Resorts sustainability program, known as Goldleaf, includes scientific solutions to a wide range of environment and climate challenges unique to each resort that Wynn Resorts operates in Las Vegas, Boston and Macau.
