Caesars Set Aside $67m For People Planet Play CSR Policy

For its ‘People Planet Play’ corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, Caesars Entertainment has set aside $67m.

The $67 million was donated in 2019, which included the value of 370,000 hours volunteered by team members in local communities. The plan of Caesars was to donate to local communities 46 cents of every dollar of income.

Caesars has also continued to promote a responsible gaming policy, educating almost 50,000 team members on a 30-year programme.

The casino giant also announced that it had 45 percent females and 35 percent ethnic diversity in leadership positions in 2019. The organisation says it is committed to equity and diversity.

Caesars used 2 percent less energy, 3 percent less water and produced 13 percent less waste than the previous year in terms of sustainability.

Tom Reeg, Caesars president and chief executive, said: “This year has certainly presented opportunities and challenges as we respond to the pandemic throughout the US.

“Perhaps most importantly, we see this as an opportunity to work together in the newly formed Caesars Entertainment, bridging our community-driven efforts and strengthening them within a larger organisation.

“Where we had set platforms and programs that impacted so many, we can build them up and make them stronger and more impactful than ever before.”
