Our Chief Sustainability Officer leads the Committee with the support of our Chairman and CEO, our Chief Financial Officer, the COOs of our Macau business and of our international operations, along with our Property Presidents and Executive Vice Presidents of several corporate and business departments. The Committee is tasked with guiding the development of a bold vision for sustainability with clear goals and strategies for improving performance and establishing the governance, funding mechanisms and resources to meet the needs of the vision and strategies. Raising awareness and engaging employees in support of Melco’s sustainability goals is also a key priority.
Three Working Groups have been set up under the Committee to achieve our three environmental goals by identifying and assessing best practices, prioritizing resources and projects across the business, and measuring and assessing our performance against metrics for:
Carbon Neutral Resorts Zero Waste and Circular Economy Sustainable Sourcing
Directors nominated by our parent company,
Melco International Development Limited
Independent Non-Executive Directors who
lead and participate in board committees
Audit and Risk Committee
Nominations and Corporate Governance Committee
Our multifaceted environmental strategy, together with our culture of responsiveness and the dedication of our people, puts us in a position for catalyzing progress across the industry. With each of our environmental focus areas, we aspire to be industry leaders while inspiring others with measurable outcomes.
