Sustainability Goals

Strategy

Sands ECO360 is aligned with internationally recognized frameworks such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a specific focus on the objectives most relevant to our operations in the areas of energy, water and waste.

SDG 6: Clean Water & Sanitation

Water is integral to the experience we provide for our guests, and we balance luxury with responsibility. We utilize nonpotable water sources whenever possible to cool our towers, landscaping and fountains. We also continually explore innovative water technologies and implement water conservation procedures.

SDG 7: Affordable & Clean Energy

Our resorts comprise millions of square feet in building space, requiring energy to heat, cool and opertate. Since 2016, we have implemented more than 250 projects to reduce electricity and natural gas consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions.

SDG 12: Responsible Consumption & Production

Every day, thousands of visitors enjoy the benefits of our resorts. By diligently targeting ways to eliminate waste, reuse, replace and recycle, we proactively manage our. company’s waste output.
