Las Vegas Sands Recognized by Dow Jones for Corporate Sustainability Leadership

Las Vegas Sands has been recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for its industry-leading corporate sustainability efforts.  Sands is the only Integrated Resort company included on the DJSI for North America.  The indices measure the performance of companies selected with economic, environmental and social criteria using a best-in-class approach.

The DJSI is one of the most highly recognized indices for corporate sustainability.  A record 993 companies participated in this year’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), and the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index tracks the performance of the top 20 percent of the 600 largest Canadian and U.S. companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index based on several economic, social and environmental criteria.

Sands has a strong track record in sustainable business performance through the economic value and social impact it has delivered as part of its commitment to making the regions it serves better places to live and work.  Las Vegas Sands drives its corporate social responsibility platform through four key programs:

  • Project Protect: To protect, lead positive change and provide lasting solutions for the communities where we operate. The goal is to ensure that we not only meet, but exceed government regulations and lead the industry in critical social issues including responsible gaming, money laundering and human trafficking prevention.  We are committed to creating and investing in industry-leading policies and procedures that safeguard our patrons, partners, employees and neighbors around the range of issues that are unique to our business.
  • Sands Cares: Our global corporate giving and community engagement program integrates our global philanthropic work which includes financial giving, Team Member volunteerism and in-kind support to various organizations in our communities.  The ultimate goal for Sands Cares is to build on the company’s legacy of making an impact in the areas we care about most-  People, Communities and Planet.
  • Sands ECO360: With its award-winning global sustainability program, Sands is committed to the planet and our award-winning global sustainability program is designed to help minimize our environmental impact and reflects our vision to lead the way in sustainable building development and resort operations. Sands ECO360’s strategy is based on four key pillars: Green buildings, Environmentally responsible operations, Green meetings and events, and Stakeholder engagement.
