30 September 2013 — MGM Resorts International chairman and chief executive Jim Murren has won Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 2013 Responsible CEO of the Year Award winner.
The annual awards are presented to CEOs across industries that clearly exceed standards in the areas of employee relations, environmental impact, human rights, philanthropy and corporate responsibility practices.
“In a business landscape where transparency, sincerity and social impact are an ever important business goal, we are pleased to shine a spotlight on a group of individuals and their organisations which exude a commitment to their stakeholders and society,” said CEO of SharedXpertise Elliot Clark, publisher of Corporate Responsibility Magazine.
“This recognition is a true reflection of the way these organisations conduct business every day.”
Corporate Responsibility said Murren’s leadership has evolved MGM Resorts’ diversity, philanthropy and sustainability efforts into a cohesive corporate responsibility framework, and has more deeply integrated them into the company’s mission, culture and operations.
MGM’s environmental sustainability credentials include the close to 1.7 million square metre CityCenter development, the largest LEED Gold certified development in the world, earning six LEED Gold certifications from the US Green Building Council.
Additionally, fifteen company resorts have achieved the prestigious Green Key rating for environmental conservation from the largest sustainable operations certification body in the world, Green Key Global.
