Our Work

Our Planet Initiatives 4

The Sands ECO360 global sustainability program guides our environmental strategy across six key areas of focus. We invest significantly in driving efficiencies, improvements and scalable solutions in the areas where we can make strong impact.

Energy

Our Planet Initiatives 1

Our focus on energy and climate change has been a foundation of the Sands ECO360 global sustainability program since its inception. To align our work in this area, we mapped our strategy to United Nations SDG 7, focusing on improving energy efficiency and increasing our share of renewable energy consumption. In addition, our greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals are aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative. Since 2016, we have explored a multi-pronged renewable energy strategy, including on-site generation, renewable energy credits and other carbon offsets.

Water

Our Planet Initiatives 7

Our water conservation and water stewardship initiatives are aligned with United Nations SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation. Beyond the robust processes we employ on our properties, Sands also addresses water issues in our regions through a unique initiative that repurposes savings from our water conservation projects into proactive community water initiatives. Working with our long-time partner Clean the World on The Drop by Drop Project, we reinvest our water savings in innovative water stewardship projects run by conservation organizations in Macao, Singapore and Las Vegas.

Waste

Our Planet Initiatives 6

As part of our comprehensive waste management approach, we have focused on addressing food waste because it represents the single-largest waste stream in Sands’ operations. Our multi-faceted strategy includes investing in waste minimization technologies such as food digesters, establishing processes for upstream and downstream food management, training our food and beverage teams on waste minimization processes and practices, engaging with local food banks and social service organizations to establish food rescue processes, and working with our clients to minimize waste.

Procurement

Our Planet Initiatives

Guided by Sands’ Sustainable Procurement Policy, we address the economic, environmental and social impacts of all products and materials used in our resorts. We strive to operate sustainably by sourcing products that benefit our communities and do not have harmful effects on human health and the environment. Over the last few years, we’ve placed emphasis on reducing reliance on single-use plastics, with a comprehensive strategy to eliminate unnecessary products and packaging, explore reusable options, replace with sustainable options and increase recyclability.

Food

Our Planet Initiatives 2

Reducing the environmental impact of food is another key area of focus for Sands ECO360. We aim to procure sustainable food products, such as coffee and tea, among other products. One of our key priorities over recent years is escalating sustainable seafood procurement, which has involved analyzing our supply chain and working to replace seafood products with sustainable alternatives. We are continuously adding new suppliers and growing our relationships with sustainable seafood partners in our regions around the world.

Transportation

Our Planet Initiatives 5

We work to address the environmental impact of our transportation solutions through several initiatives on our properties. From expanding electric vehicle charging points at our resorts to replacing diesel buses with compressed natural gas and electric buses, we strive to incorporate sustainable practices into all areas of transportation management. For example, 100 percent of electricity use at our company airplane hangar has been offset with renewable energy certificates.
