MGM Resorts : Joins World Observance of Earth Hour 2016

03/17/2016 | 04:34pm EDT

Exterior lighting at Nevada and Mississippi resorts will dim in a global recognition of climate change

Las Vegas, March 17, 2016 - In honor of Earth Hour, MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) will dim the exterior lights at several of its resorts, joining the global effort to raise awareness of climate change.

Exterior lighting, rooftop signage, marquees and front features at the company's major Las Vegas resorts, Gold Strike Tunica, and Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Miss., will be turned off on March 19 from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. These iconic resorts will be joined by some world-famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Brandenburg Castle and The Acropolis of Athens. The event is one that companies, cities and conservationists use to demonstrate the need and commitment to save the planet.

'For MGM Resorts, Earth Hour is a one-hour observance of a year-round commitment,' said Cindy Ortega, MGM Resorts Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer. 'Our resorts work diligently to do more with less and unite in the same mission - to build a vibrant future in which our planet's limited resources are protected.'

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Earth Hour. The annual conservation awareness event was started by World Wildlife Fund in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with more than two million participants. Now, more than 162 countries and territories and millions of people around the world are engaged in this celebration.

MGM Resorts has saved more than 194 million kilowatt hours of energy in the past six years at its resorts, the equivalent to 23,000 homes annually.

In 2014, MGM Resorts joined the U.S. Energy Department's Better Buildings Challenge, a national pledge calling for organizations to voluntarily reduce their building portfolio energy use by 20 percent, by 2020. As part of this initiative, the company is currently undergoing a major lighting retrofit project to replace nearly 1.3 million individual light bulbs with state-of-the-art, ultra-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) lamps. The overall companywide LED project encompasses every public and back-of-house area at every company resort and is scheduled to be completed by 2018.
