LAS VEGAS – Caesars Entertainment Corporation has received three prestigious sustainability awards: the Green Apple Award, the 2011 Water Hero Award and the 2011 Golden Pinecone Environmental Award.
The Green Organisation has awarded the Green Apple Award to London Clubs International for environmental best practice in the category of Environmental Improvement and Sustainable Development for its Food for Thought program. Food for Thought plants a tree for every bill presented to restaurant diners at select locations across the United Kingdom.
Caesars Entertainment was named as one of five recipients of the 2011 Water Hero Awards from the Water Conservation Coalition for its leadership in water conservation in southern Nevada. The Las Vegas area properties were applauded for using innovative technology that saves more than 272 million gallons of water annually through water smart landscaping, an in-room opt-out linen program and the installation of more efficient water fixtures.
On Nov. 16, Nevada EcoNet and greenUP! will award Caesars Entertainment Northern Nevada, comprised of Harrah’s Reno, Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and Harvey’s Lake Tahoe, with a 2011 Golden Pinecone Environmental Award, recognizing preservation and enhancement efforts in northern Nevada. Caesars Entertainment Northern Nevada is being honored for exemplifying how large businesses can improve profitability and environmental quality through recycling and reducing water consumption, as well as facilitating and promoting employee and guest recycling conservation programs in the community.
CodeGreen, the environmental sustainability initiative at Caesars Entertainment, is the key driver to Caesars progression in meeting its sustainability goals. It focuses on critical issues of energy, waste, water and carbon emissions at all of its properties and seeks to engage its employees to reduce natural resource use, conserve energy and promote reuse and recycling.
