GVC and Las Vegas Sands receive Dow Jones memberships

By Harrison Sayers

Operators GVC Holdings and Las Vegas Sands have become members of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), an honour often referred to as the ‘gold standard’ for corporate sustainability.

DJSI was originally launched in 1999, with the aim of representing and tracking the ‘leading sustainability-driven companies.'

GVC completed its acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral on 28 March, leading to the newly-enlarged GVC being admitted to the FTSE 100 index on 16 June.

Nick Batram, GVC’s Director of Investor Relations, said: “We are proud to be recognised as a leader in corporate social responsibility, which is at the core everything we do as a business. Acting responsibly is not a luxury but fundamental to our long-term success and a key driver of shareholder value.”

Robert Goldstein, President and COO of Las Vegas Sands, said: "This designation speaks to our commitment to continually strengthening our corporate social responsibility performance, as well as maintaining our drive toward positive business impact in the regions we serve."
