At Caesars Entertainment, our CSR strategy reflects our promise to do business in a way that benefits people and society and cares for our environment. Since the establishment of our Code of Commitment more than 20 years ago, the principles behind PEOPLE PLANET PLAY have guided our actions and inspired our leadership and Team Members to act with integrity and accountability and in collaboration with the many individuals and organizations that we interact with every day.
In line with global efforts to mitigate the effects of increasing planet temperatures, we have taken action to reduce the environmental impacts of our activities across the entire scope of our operations and supply chain, leading our industry in many aspects of energy reductions, emissions avoidance, and resource efficiency. We were among the first in our industry to commit to Science Based Targets, using 2011 as our baseline.
We are committed to supporting the well-being of all our Team Members, guests, and local communities by promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, and health and wellness to create a great workplace. How we support our people defines how we serve our guests and foster trusting relationships and thriving communities.
We are committed to reducing our business impacts on the environment by mitigating our effect on climate change. In 2019, we updated our previously approved science-based targets to be in line with well below 2 degrees Celsius per the Science Based Targets initiative. After the 2020 merger between Eldorado Resorts and Caesars Entertainment, we looked at how to set targets and goals for the combined entity and expand our strategy to all operations.
As a multibillion-dollar buyer of goods and services every year, we engage tens of thousands of suppliers nationwide. Our goal is to source quality goods and services, while leveraging our purchasing power to benefit the communities where we operate by engaging small, diverse and local businesses. We engage with local commerce, minority, women-owned, disadvantaged, disabled, veteran and LGBTQ-owned and certified businesses (MWDBEs).
