Melco’s Above & Beyond Strategic Sustainability Framework

Our ambitious goals include eliminating the impact of our resorts on the climate by 2030 and taking a lead on circular economy approaches and responsible gaming. It also commits us to be the company people choose to work for, and a leading corporate citizen in the community with a focus on respecting and promoting local culture. These actions underpin our strategy of Above & Beyond and are addressed by our five focus areas, which also form the main sections of this report.


Stakeholder Engagement

Identifying what matters most to our stakeholders and incorporating issues that have a material impact on our business into our strategy, is key to our success as a sustainable business. This also helps us to turn risks into opportunities and create shared value.
