Caesars Entertainment Corporation has hailed “a run of prominent corporate responsibility recognitions,” after being named among the most responsible companies in America by Newsweek magazine.

Ranking at 146 on Newsweek’s 300-member list, representing the only gaming entity to make the cut, it follows the magazine analysing the 2,000 largest US companies, based on revenues, utilising publicly available data spanning the environmental, social and corporate governance categories.

In addition to the Newsweek honour, Caesars also received a perfect score of 100 per cent in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation‘s Corporate Equality Index for the 13th consecutive year, earning the designation as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.” 

The index is a national bench-marking tool on corporate policies and practices as they pertain to LGBTQ employees, covering criteria including domestic partner benefits and supplier diversity.

Furthermore, the company was also named in Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s “100 Best Corporate Citizens” list, ranking at 72 based on its environmental, social and corporate governance performance. 

“Our 60,000-plus dedicated employees continue to make a meaningful impact within our properties and well beyond,” noted Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “As we kick off a New Year and new decade, we’re looking to grow on the commitments we’ve made and continue to make a lasting impact on the communities we serve.”

Striving to build on its momentum during 2020, Caesars stresses that it intends to build upon its work already undertaken within the environmental, social and corporate governance space through a number of initiatives.

These efforts include the continuation of its Economic Equity Tour, launched by Caesars and Caesars Foundation in 2019. Hitting six cities last year, the tour will visit eight this time around, with an end-goal of creating thriving communities.

The company is also entering its 18th year of partnership with Meals on Wheels America, working together to combat the issues of senior hunger and isolation nationwide. Caesars has donated nearly $3.3m to the nonprofit and gifted 61 meal delivery vehicles since 2002.
