Melco Resorts and Entertainment has announced that it has been recognised by the 2019 Sustainable Business Awards (SBA) Philippines for its outstanding performance on energy management and employee development.

“We appreciate SBA’s recognition for all our efforts at Melco and City of Dreams Manila. We value our employees’ career development and that is what motivates us to provide a nurturing environment for talent throughout our company.
