Wynn Resorts Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

We are committed to operating in accordance with the highest ethical standards. Our commitment to conducting business ethically starts with our Board and our Independent Compliance Committee, who oversee and promote compliance with our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, our Compliance Plan, and our Anti-Corruption Policy.

Our Anti-Corruption Policy, which applies to Wynn Resorts and all our affiliates and subsidiaries, ensures our business practices fully comply with applicable anti-corruption laws. All our employees must immediately report actual or potential violations of our policy or Anti-Corruption Laws, whether by Wynn employees or third parties, to our Chief Global Compliance Officer. The Chief Global Compliance Officer, who reports to the independent Compliance Committee, is responsible for the Company’s compliance with the Anti-Corruption Policy.

As part of our commitment to ethics, we require all Senior Leadership, Board Members, and Executives to receive biannual training on our anti-corruption policies. Additionally, all new employees are required to acknowledge understanding the Company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides that political contributions (either directly or through our political action committee) may only be made with the review and approval of our Global Chief Compliance Officer. Proposed political contributions are subject to an internal control process, designed to confirm compliance with all applicable laws, including contribution limits, and to confirm that all political contributions are to promote our business interests. The Company’s Government Affairs Department provides a quarterly report to the Compliance Officer summarizing all political contributions made by the Company in the prior quarter. For more information, please see our Political Contributions Policy.

Wynn Resorts is taking steps to monitor and reduce our water usage. Our programs include investing in smart technologies, monitoring water use on a functional basis, aligning best practices among our resorts, and investing in equipment for water use intensity. At all our resorts, we take steps to utilize technology that uses water more efficiently. We collect soil moisture measurements daily with a digital moisture meter, which feeds into a smart meteorological system that disperses water based on precipitation, temperature, and other specific weather conditions. Evaporation and runoff are also minimized through our precise drip irrigation systems.

The availability of water as a resource varies among the regions of our resort operations. We assess water risk using the World Resource Institute Water Stress Map. In regions where an increased level of risk is identified, we prioritize specialized measures to responsibly allocate our water use by investing in water-smart facility machinery, integrating weather monitoring, expanding water recycling opportunities, and reducing external water intake. More information on our programs is available in Life Returns to the Mystic Shoreline, p. 49 and Cultivating a Green Resort, p. 54.
