We believe that a focus on Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) is an integral part of our success as a Company. Since our Company’s founding more than 45 years ago, we have followed a philosophy built upon sharing our success with others, treating every stakeholder of our Company with respect and integrity, and making sure our home communities are better places because we are a part of them.
We believe our firm commitment to ESG makes us a stronger company, and is the foundation upon which we fulfill our goal of creating long-term shareholder value.
We invite you to review the downloadable Boyd Gaming ESG Report to learn more about our commitment to Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance initiatives.
We Care About People.
We strive to treat everyone with respect and honesty. We endeavor to be an employer of choice, creating a workplace environment that embraces diversity and inclusion, where team members of every background have the opportunity to realize their full potential and build a rewarding career with us.
Our commitment to team member engagement is evidenced by our high average tenure of 10 years, and an overall voluntary turnover rate of less than 20%. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is illustrated by a team member population that is 51% women and 49% minority.
We Care About our Communities.
We know that our long-term success is intertwined with healthy and vibrant communities. We invest in our communities accordingly, contributing more than $40 million to thousands of non-profit organizations across the United States between 2017 to 2020.
In addition to generous financial contributions, our team members also actively participate in volunteer activities across the country. Our properties also host regular toy and clothing drives as well as blood drives, giving back to our communities in meaningful and unique ways.
We Care About the Environment.
We have committed ourselves to a comprehensive effort to help protect the environment and meaningfully reduce our consumption of natural resources across our nationwide operations. Through these efforts, we strive to find ways to reduce our carbon footprint and lower water stress on our communities, helping ensure the health of our shared environment for future generations.
Since 2017, Boyd Gaming has reduced our nationwide electricity consumption by nearly 3%, carbon emissions by more than 2%, and water consumption by almost 4%.
We Care About Good Corporate Governance.
We are committed to treating our stockholders with the highest level of integrity and respect. To fulfill this commitment, we follow a robust set of corporate governance policies and procedures, and have assembled an experienced, majority-independent Board of Directors that shares our deep commitment to integrity.
