Melco Resorts & Entertainment supports, encourages and facilitates events for employees to engage in volunteerism and benefit the community. With environmental sustainability and volunteerism being fundamental elements of Melco’s CSR philosophy, Melco volunteers, their family members and volunteers from Macau Autism Association worked together to support a tree planting event hosted by Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM). The team, consisting of 61 adults and 26 children, gathered at Grand Taipa Hill for the government-led tree planting exercise. Melco encouraged volunteers to bring along their children as part of the company’s “Teaching Children Values” initiative; a program which aims to teach kids important life values through volunteerism. A total of 60 trees were successfully planted as a result of the volunteers’ efforts.

Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment said, “Melco is fully supportive of the Macao SAR government’s initiatives to target the growth and development of a greener Macau. Further to Melco and IAM’s collaborative beach cleaning efforts at Hac Sa last summer, we are thrilled to be invited by IAM to take part in the latest tree planting activity. We are grateful to our volunteers, many of whom brought along their children, for taking the time to contribute to this great social and environmental cause. We’d also like to extend our thanks to the Macau Autism Association for their support at the event.”

Mr. José Tavares, President of IAM, commented: “We are grateful for Melco’s voluntary contributions towards the city’s clean-up efforts in the immediate aftermath of Typhoon Mangkhut, including their team’s help to remove felled trees and debris left on Macau’s nature trails and cycling tracks. IAM actively hosts events to benefit a greener Macau, and continue to advocate participation from both enterprises and members of the community. We are especially thankful for Melco’s efforts at this local tree planting initiative to contribute towards a greener and more sustainable environment.”
