A European-based environmental tourism group awarded Harrah’s Entertainment’s eight Las Vegas properties green energy and sustainable environment accreditations, the gaming giant announced this morning.
Travelife Sustainability Systems issued its gold award for Harrah’s green energy efforts at Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas, Flamingo, Bally’s, Bill’s, Harrah’s Las Vegas and the Rio.
The Imperial Palace received a silver award.
Harrah’s Chairman and Chief Executive Gary Loveman said in a statement the accreditation is a signal to customers that they can feel good about staying at Harrah’s properties.
“We’ve invested heavily in sustainability at Harrah’s,” Loveman said. “(We’ve) made it a core business principle that drives business strategy and operations.”
The Travelife organization was established by the Federation of Tour Operators and is partially funded by the European Union to identify companies that have excellent environmental and social practices in the travel and tourism industry.
