Caesars is going green! Caesars Entertainment is looking towards the future with plans to go green. As you know, Caesars owns several properties across the states. And very much like other land-based casinos, they use a lot of energy! Well, it takes a lot of electricity to keep those slot machines blinking! And Caesars is aware of that. What’s more is that the company recognize the importance of keeping our planet clean. And to this effect, they plan to put in place changes that will reduce the levels of emissions in the future. For now, these changes are only going to take place in Nevada. But maybe they’ll also implement these initiatives in New Jersey in the future, who knows?
So, what’s the plan?
In essence, the plan is to achieve certain set targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The targets are scientific and are in line with the level of decarbonization required to keep the planet cool. Meaning, that the planet’s temperature does not increase by more than 2 degrees Celsius when compared to 2011.
Also, by 2025 Caesars Group hopes to reduce Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30%. And the company expects to achieve a further impressive 95% reductions by 2025. To reach this goal, Caesars is going to buy a solar energy facility in the Las Vegas Desert.
Following the news Caesars CEO Mark Frissora said
“Caesars Entertainment has a well-established track record of successful environmental sustainability progress… We are proud to be part of this global effort.”
Who else is going green?
There are over 400 businesses taking part in this global initiative. But for now, only 100 companies got their “going green” plan approved by the SBTi. If you’re unfamiliar with the SBTi, know that it’s a worldwide organization that partners with the United Nations (UN) and the Worldwide Fund for Nature.
Of course, this is excellent news, and it’s lovely to see companies are taking action to make sure our children get a brighter and cleaner future!
