MGM Resorts International Joins World Observance Of Earth Hour 2019

Published on : Saturday, March 30, 2019

MGM Resorts International will participate in Earth Hour for the 12th consecutive year. Earth Hour is on March 30, 2019 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. local time and is sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund.

 

 

 

A total of 19 MGM Resort properties around the globe, as well as T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, will turn off all non-essential exterior lighting, rooftop signage and marquees to symbolize its ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.

 

 

 

Every year millions of people, businesses and landmarks set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights and celebrate the Earth Hour movement.

 

 

 

Cindy Ortega, MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer said: “MGM Resorts is proud to be a leader in environmental sustainability and we are deeply committed to making sure we do our part to conserve energy”.

 

 

 

 

Exterior lighting, rooftop signage, marquees and front features at all the MGM Resorts’ major Las Vegas properties, as well as Beau Rivage Resort and Casino and Gold Strike Tunica in Mississippi, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in New Jersey, MGM National Harbor in Maryland, MGM China in Macau and Cotai, will also participate.

 

 

 

 

Earth Hour is one of the many ways by which MGM Resorts focuses on increasing the energy efficiencies of our buildings. For example, between 2007-2017, they reduced energy use by 16 per cent, partly by installing over 1.5 million LED lightbulbs across our resorts. The cumulative energy we’ve saved over this period is equivalent to the annual usage of more than 125,000 average U.S. homes. MGM has committed to reduce our carbon emissions per square foot by 50 per cent.
