Macau.- Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited, recognised by the 2019 Sustainable Business Awards (SBA) Philippines for its outstanding performance on energy management and employee development. Most noteworthy, at a ceremony hosted earlier this week, Melco was honored for its talent development program for its workforce in both Manila and Macau. And also for its energy efficiency efforts to tackle climate change at City of Dreams Manila.
Melco has received special recognition in two categories for this year’s SBA. Firstly, Melco was recognized for its workforce development program which embraces a holistic “Whole Person Development” training approach, empowering its employees to have a generalist career path beyond a technical or functional-only focus and focuses on their personal growth. And secondly, for its efforts in tackling climate change, which includes setting the goal of achieving carbon neutrality in its operations, while improving energy efficiency and optimizing its building management system to track energy use at City of Dreams Manila.
“We appreciate SBA’s recognition for all our efforts at Melco and City of Dreams Manila. We value our employees’ career development and that motivates us to provide a nurturing environment for talent throughout our company. Being socially responsible and being a good steward to our environment are certainly key priorities for Melco. We aim to go above and beyond in our social, environmental and governance commitments” Lawrence Ho, Melco Chairman and CEO.
