Harnessing The Power Of Authentic Compassion


2017 Global Sustainability Report of Wynn Resorts adds new features.

Dailycsr.com – 28 May 2018 – The Wynn Resorts Company is ready with their “2017 Global Sustainability Report” which takes a comprehensive look at its commitments of operating responsibly besides touching upon its “corporate culture, environmental protection, and community service”.
Enumerating further, the report goes on to talk about Wynn’s “several new initiatives” in line with “employee diversity” and “gender equity”. These efforts reinforce the continued efforts of Wynn Resorts to maintain the position of the “industry employer of choice”. The report contains the chief executive, Matt Maddox’s remarks in a forward, wherein Maddox states:
“We work to be the leader in community development, in environmental stewardship and in developing new leaders both inside and outside the company. Over the years, the culture of Wynn Resorts and the individual passion of our employees has made giving back a part of who we are. No corporate program can replicate authentic compassion, and we continue to harness this powerful spirit.”
The report also covers the company’s various actions in key areas that took place with that year. Here is a list of the key areas covered as mentioned by ReportAlert:
“corporate governance, global growth, workforce development, major philanthropic efforts, responsible sourcing, and prioritizing a healthy planet”
However, this year’s report has a new addition which features the company’s “substantial” investment’s overview which pioneers in “solar- and battery-powered clean energy solutions” along with Wynn’s “environmental cleanup efforts” at the “Encore Boston Harbor site”, the latter being responsible for earning Wynn’s recognition as a leader in “environmental stewardship”.
Below are given some of the highlights from Wynn’s 2017 report, as mentioned by ReportAlert:
  • Creation of the Wynn Resorts Culture and Community Department, which supports diversity and inclusion, gender equality, fair treatment in the workplace, and employee charitable efforts. In addition, several new benefits have been introduced including paid parental leave, an industry first for a casino resort in Nevada.
  • Introduction of the Women’s Leadership Forum, designed to further close the gender gap in management, provide career growth opportunities for female employees at all levels, create pay and title equity, and ensure a safe workplace.
  • More than $24 million and 22,000 employee volunteer hours donated to hundreds of charities, or invested in local communities on behalf of Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas, Boston, and Macau, including relief efforts after Typhoon Hato in Macau and Hurricane Harvey in Houston.
  • Widespread Las Vegas elementary schools support, including Wynn’s innovative “Adopt-A-Classroom” program at Dean Petersen Elementary School that helped increase teacher retention rates, test scores, and the school’s overall rating by the Clark County school district.
  • Construction and opening of a Crisis Intervention Center serving homeless Veterans, created in partnership with the non-profit organization Veterans Village Las Vegas and hundreds of local trade companies that donated more than $1 million in materials.
  • Extensive Remediation of the Encore Boston Harbor site, fixing decades of untold damage done by a former chemical plant that destroyed 630,000 tons of soil over 33 acres. This included the creation of a “living shoreline” along the Mystic River, meaning that more than seven acres of shoreline was restored to a natural state, improving water equality and increasing biodiversity.
  • $12 million investment in solar energy, including the opening of the Wynn Solar Facility, a 160-acre solar facility that is currently powering 75% of the peak power needs at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. The Facility will eventually provide 100% of the power requirements for Wynn’s new lagoon and convention space expansion. The solar energy effort also includes the installation of 103,000 square feet of solar panels on Wynn’s rooftop.
