Melco has won an Outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility award at the 7th Cross-Strait-Four-Region Outstanding CSR Awards organized by the Mirror Post of Hong Kong.
Melco garnered the accolade among regional organizational entries from China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan based on its commitment to shareholders and clients, community relations, employee care, leadership and environmental sustainability by a panel of judges consisting of eleven expert professionals from various fields.
Ms. Akiko Takahashi, executive vice president, chief officer of human resources and corporate social responsibility of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “As a responsible corporate citizen devoted to giving back to the community, Melco is extremely pleased to achieve this Outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility Award from the Mirror Post, and would like to thank the organizers for the recognition. We are grateful for the efforts from our team members at Melco for making this possible, as we strive to expand the Company’s international presence with strategies and objectives developed in close alignment with key societal issues through our proactive and innovative corporate social responsibility programs.”
Melco’s corporate social responsibility programs focus on seven major pillars: youth, education, women, culture/heritage, environment, responsible gaming and whole person development. Programs are developed to address and facilitate solutions on key societal issues in Macau, and to support local charitable organizations guided by the vision to making a positive difference to the community. Last year, Melco employees dedicated over 136,000 hours to volunteerism to benefit 40 local NGO’s, with more than 9,700 employee headcounts recorded at volunteering events.
