The operator says reduced energy, water and greenhouse gas usage by more than 30%.

Boyd Gaming Corporation has published its 2022 Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) report. The Las Vegas-based company has substantially claims it has reduced water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption throughout the year.

The group reported that its annual energy consumption fell below 2017’s baseline year by 31%. Greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption were also reduced in 2022, decreasing by 35% and 30% respectively.

Boyd Gaming’s employee demographics this year reflected an increase in its efforts toward diversity in the workplace, according to the report. Minority groups in 2022 made up 65% of the company’s new hires, along with a female demographic of 55%.

During the year, the company also developed and implemented a formal and companywide human rights policy.

The group said it has continued its focus on providing relief for those in need. Boyd reported a donation total of $45m collected between 2020 and 2022 that went to support local communities and non-profit organizations.

Company CEO and President Keith Smith said: “Since the day our company was founded, Boyd Gaming has been committed to operating with the highest standards of integrity and ethical conduct. This 48-year-long commitment is the foundation of Caring the Boyd Way, our Company’s ESG philosophy.

“As outlined in this year’s report, the entire Boyd team made excellent progress advancing our strategic ESG initiatives in 2022, as we continued to positively impact our stakeholders and the communities we call home.”

Boyd Gaming currently operates 28 gaming entertainment properties in 10 states, including five properties in Louisiana. The company also owns 5% equity in the national sports betting operator, FanDuel Group.
