Wynn Resorts Highlights Environmental Efforts in 2021 Sustainability Report

Wynn Resorts has published its 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report, highlighting the focus on energy and emissions reduction.

The company’s survey details its sustainability efforts during 2021, including work on Goldleaf, a program launched by Wynn Resorts to contemplate scientific solutions to the environmental and climate challenges facing its properties.

Wynn Resorts’ goal is to be net zero by 2050, but wants emissions to decrease by 2030. As a result, Goldleaf’s work is important to the company achieving these goals, and annual progress counts.

Given this, Wynn Resorts’ efforts in 2021 have allowed the company to move closer to net zero, but there is still a long way to go.
