The Wynn Resorts ESG Report presents information that references select Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and Sustainability Accounting Board Standards (SASB). The Corporate Responsibility Review recounts our commitments to our employees, the positive impacts of Wynn's activities in the communities in which it operates, and our long-term goals of doing the right thing for the planet.

"If you look at our Core Values and Behaviors in this report, you will see that the ideals of caring for people, fair treatment, taking personal responsibility, and driving ongoing improvement are built into who we are," said Craig S. Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts. "Those values, in turn, influence who we hire, and that makes all the difference in a business like ours."

The Company, under the pillars of Our People, Our Communities, and Our Planet, accomplished key metrics in advancing environmental initiatives, social impact, and governance, with notable items including:

  • Wynn Las Vegas diverted 41% of resort waste from landfills, setting a historic waste diversion record. Wynn's commitment to creating effortless guest experiences includes taking responsibility for all recycling sorting on behalf of its guests. Trained employees and expert partners hand-separate recycling, compost, and reusables from landfill material—maximizing the quantity of recovered material. In addition to the record-setting waste diversion number, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Boston Harbor collectively recycled more than 4,000 pounds of soap from guest rooms in partnership with Clean the World, providing essential hygiene products to at-need individuals across the globe.
  • Wynn employees donated more than $1 million to the Wynn Resorts Foundation in direct contributions and fundraising efforts, the highest fundraising year in Company history. In total, Wynn Resorts contributed almost $9 million in cash and in-kind donations to charitable organizations throughout North America. These contributions, as well as the 35,000 hours of volunteerism donated by Wynn employees, illustrate why Wynn Resorts was named as one of the Best Brands for Social Impact in 2023 by Forbes.
  • Wynn Resorts powered resorts in North America with 29% renewable energy. The Company's investment in energy independence laid the groundwork for progressing toward Wynn's goal to become Net-Zero by 2050.
  • Commitment to animal welfare: As part of Wynn Resorts' commitment to the humane care of animals, the Company considers their welfare and care a priority throughout its supply chain. The Company prioritizes vendors and suppliers who can demonstrate responsible practices in animal care. Wynn's U.S. resorts sourced 100% of eggs from cage-free suppliers in 2023, and the company has recently committed to sourcing 100% cage-free eggs globally by 2026.
