The company has three climate goals – emissions reduction in direct operations, low carbon electricity sourcing, and value chain emissions reductions. MGM Resorts references the Corporate Climate Stewardship Guidelines for Best Practice Climate Action outlined in the Paris Agreement as a framework for their strategic climate approach.  

MGM Resorts’ broad strategy to combat climate change illustrates their understanding that climate action goes beyond energy alone, that many climate-related risks manifest as water-related impacts, and that all materials have embodied carbon emissions. Multiple initiatives in each area help deliver against a broader decarbonization agenda and help increase their resilience to climate risk. Three key examples include their 100 MW MGM Resorts Mega Solar Array, helping to reduce scope 2 emissions; their turf removal program, which helps reduce consumptive water use and mitigate their exposure to climate-exacerbated water stress; and their Materials & Waste program, reducing disposal to decrease landfill-related scope 3 emissions.
