STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

Stakeholder engagement

 

Working in unison with our stakeholders, we can really make a meaningful difference – multiplying our positive impacts both now and into the future.

 

Team Member collaboration

Team Members are truly our greatest assets and we strive to develop appreciation for the planet's finite resources through environmental campaigns and education events. Sustainability champions are crowned at all levels of our organization to help us integrate Sands ECO360 initiatives into the daily operations.

Partnerships

Sustainability challenges are often interwoven and multifaceted in nature. Diverse partnerships among various organizations and stakeholders can produce previously unimagined solutions. Our strategic partnerships, formulated on shared values and objectives, are aimed at creating transformational change in the regions and locales in which we operate.

Certifications and reporting

Measuring and communicating progress on key sustainability indicators is paramount. For five years we have published an annual Sands ECO360 report, highlighting our progress and the areas where we’re working hard to improve. Our reports focus on the most relevant issues to our business and stakeholders, and show how we address our material challenges. Our commitment to sustainability is continually recognized through certifications, rankings, and awards. Performance reviews by sustainability research and rating agencies help us improve our strategy and policies.
