MGM Resorts sets industry first with UN Water Mandate commitment

MGM Resorts International has become the first gambling business to endorse the United Nations’ CEO Water Mandate, a global coalition of hundreds of companies committed to addressing water crises and challenges.

The CEO Water Mandate aims to mobilise business leaders to commit to meaningful action across key elements and report annually on their progress, as well as identify and reduce critical water risks to their businesses, seize water-related opportunities, and contribute to water security and UN Sustainable Development Goals

Some 230 companies from across a range of industries and regions have signed up to the initiative.
