Applying the full spectrum of our unique assets for positive impact requires not only significant investment, but also passion. Sitting at the helm of our sustainability strategy, our Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho actively participates in our Executive Sustainability Committee meetings.

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.
