Las Vegas Sands Corp. recognized by Dow Jones

13 September 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Las Vegas Sands Corp. has once again been recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for its industry-leading corporate sustainability efforts. Sands is the only Integrated Resort company included on the DJSI North America.

"This designation speaks to our commitment to continually strengthening our corporate social responsibility performance, as well as maintaining our drive toward positive business impact in the regions we serve," said Robert Goldstein, president and chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands. "We are honored to be a leader not only among Integrated Resort companies, but among this outstanding group of peers who are demonstrating that sustainable business performance is a top priority."

The DJSI is one of the most highly recognized indices for corporate sustainability. A record 993 companies participated in this year's Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), and the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index tracks the performance of the top 20 percent of the 600 largest Canadian and U.S. companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index based on several economic, social and environmental criteria.

Sands drives its People, Planet and Communities corporate social responsibility platform through programs including the Sands ECO360 global sustainability program; the Sands Cares corporate giving and community engagement program, the Project Protect initiative focused on responsible gaming, anti-money laundering and human trafficking prevention practices; and Sands Academy, a global Team Member development program. In addition, the company has a strong track record in sustainable business performance through the economic value and social impact it has delivered as part of its commitment to making the regions it serves better places to live and work.

Earlier this year, Fortune named Sands one of the "World's Most Admired Companies" in its annual roundup of the world's most respected and reputable businesses, and Forbes named Sands as one of America's Best Employers based on an independent survey of more than 30,000 employees working for companies with at least 1,000 people within their U.S. operations.
