Green Advantage

MGM Resorts International’s strategic plan for environmental responsibility is designed to reduce our consumption of the planet’s limited resources. Through our comprehensive sustainability platform, the Green Advantage, we are able to integrate environmentally responsible practices which effectively lower the carbon footprint of our operations, including our resorts, restaurants, retail spaces, meetings and conventions.

To achieve our sustainability goals, Green Advantage focuses our efforts on five core areas that drive our continuous improvements and positive environmental impact: Energy & Water Conservation, Green Building, Recycling & Waste Management, Sustainable Supply Chain and Outreach & Education.
