LAS VEGAS, Dec. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Las Vegas Sands
(NYSE: LVS) has been recognized by Newsweek as one of
America's Most Responsible Companies for 2022. The company ranked
136th out of 500 total companies included and was the
highest-ranking hospitality and gaming company named to the list.
Newsweek measured 2,000 companies headquartered in
the United States on
environmental, social and corporate governance performance to
determine the rankings.
Sands' performance was highlighted by its environmental score of
93.5 out of 100, demonstrating the company's leadership in reducing
emissions and waste, mitigating climate change, promoting water
stewardship and building environmentally responsible Integrated
Resorts. Sands also scored well on the social and corporate
governance rankings, reflecting its outstanding working environment
and Team Member growth initiatives, as well as its long-standing
commitment to community engagement and ethical, accountable and
transparent business standards.
"Our inclusion on Newsweek's list is another testament to
our ESG leadership, following designations on DJSI World and
North America and the CDP A lists
for climate and water," said Ron
Reese, senior vice president of global communications and
corporate affairs, who spearheads corporate responsibility for the
company. "These respected performance indicators endorse our
progress in delivering transformative social and environmental
impact in our regions by addressing the issues most material to
supporting our people, keeping our communities strong and
protecting the planet."
Sands' global corporate responsibility commitment is built on
the pillars of People, Communities and Planet. The People pillar
encompasses the company's focus on being the employer and partner
of choice in its regions by building a culture dedicated to
supporting Team Members, guests, suppliers and partners. The global
Sands Cares community engagement program leads the company's
Community pillar and drives efforts to solve pressing social
issues, create resiliency and maximize regional strengths as
valuable tourism destinations. Finally, Sands works to ensure the
environmental health of its regions through the Planet pillar, led
by the Sands ECO360 global sustainability program. The company
annually reports its goals, progress and accomplishments in these
three areas, along with its practices around ethics and governance,
in the Sands Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report.
The candidate pool for the Newsweek America's Most
Responsible Companies is the top 2,000 public companies by revenue
with headquarters in the United
States. Results are based on publicly available key
performance indicators as well as an independent survey of more
than 11,000 U.S. residents. Calculation of each company's final
