Bally’s Corporation has established a specialized committee within its board of directors to develop the firm’s long-term Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy.
Responsible for the establishment and oversight of Bally’s sustainability objectives, the Committee will assess ESG goals, identify and evaluate ESG risks and impacts and formulate a long-term overall strategy.
Robeson Reeves, President Interactive, will chair the ESG Committee, which will be made up by Soo Kim, Chairman of the Board, Lee Fenton, Bally’s CEO, and Wanda Y. Wilson, an independent director since 2019.
Furthermore, the firm announced it has undertaken a company-wide sustainability audit, designed to ‘help shape its long term ESG strategy’. Following this audit, Bally’s will publish its Sustainability Accounting Standards Board metrics for FY21, outlining its work to improve the environmental impact of its operations.
Beginning next quarter, Bally’s will report under the UN Social Development Goals framework.
Reeves commented, “Bally’s is committed to expanding its role as a responsible leader in the gaming industry, serving as an integral partner in the communities in which we operate, and providing transparency to our investors and other stakeholders on ESG topics.
“Our recent accomplishments represent the first, important steps towards achieving this goal, and I look forward to providing updates as additional progress is made.”
