By 2007, Caesars Entertainment CEO Gary Loveman couldn’t help but notice that employees at many of the company’s properties were showing surprising amounts of resilience and initiative around sustainability. They were coming up with ideas for saving on energy and water and reducing waste, and they were running with them.
Loveman liked the fact that ideas were bubbling up from employees, but he wanted a more comprehensive sustainability strategy.
In October 2007, Caesars unveiled a companywide program called “CodeGreen,” the company’s first comprehensive sustainability strategy, aimed at organizing and supporting employees involved with projects at the local level.
