Caesars Entertainment invested $67m in communities its casinos serve during 2019 as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, its latest report reveals.
The latest report on ‘People Planet Play’, the framework that underpins Caesars’ CSR strategy, reveals a number of achievements by Caesars properties in 2019 and the first half of 2020, prior to the merger with Eldorado Resorts.
Among the major achievements by Caesars in the period was contributing $67m, including the value of 370,000 hours volunteered by team members, to its local communities in 2019.
Caesars also said that it turned every dollar of revenue into a contribution to its communities of 46 cents, nearly four times the average community contribution for US corporations.
In terms of diversity, equity and inclusion, Caesars legacy properties employed 45% women and 35% ethnic minorities in management roles. This commitment to gender and racial equality will be continued following the Eldorado merger, the operator added.
