We develop our resorts with the utmost care for our host communities by designing, constructing and remodeling our buildings to reduce environmental impact and achieve long-term sustainability.
Conceptualizing new resorts begins with assessment of the long-term implications of our operations. From the dream stage to construction, environmental sustainability is a top priority and systematically incorporated into the development process, using innovative technologies and tailoring our plans to meet our host regions’ needs.
Remodels and Renovations
We constantly refresh our vast portfolio of hotel suites, meeting spaces and environment attractions. During the upgrade process, environmental sustainability is a top priority, whether that’s converting to energy-efficient appliances, using eco-friendly paints and carpets or upgrading to low-flow water fixtures.
Technology is advancing at a faster pace than ever before, changing our guests’ expectations as well as the way in which the hospitality industry conducts business. From hydrogen fuel cells for forklifts to bio-gas and energy projects, we constantly study and pilot new technologies to fine-tune our operations.
Environmentally Responsible Operations
Creating harmony between guest satisfaction and reducing our environmental footprint is no small charge — but we are up for the challenge and have successfully mastered incorporating a range of sustainability practices while maintaining exquisite offerings at our properties.
Natural Resources Conservation
We are acutely aware of the impact we have on the planet and balance delivering our services to an ever-increasing number of visitors, while continuing to reduce our resource use. Our approach is focused on strategically selected projects designed to improve energy, water and operational efficiencies.
In managing our Integrated Resorts, we must account for the complexities of an evolving waste stream. In line with the size and scope of our properties, we have implemented a comprehensive program that ensures waste is minimzed upstream as well as diverted downstream.
Supply Chain Sustainability
Spanning three countries and two continents, our complex global supply chain is the engine behind our success. We leverage our Sustainable Procurement Policy to ensure best practices for conservation, recyclability, toxicity reduction and local business engagement.
Green Meetings and Events
Shaping modern gatherings means going beyond basic coordination to curate meetings and events with environmental sustainability, wellness and community impact in mind. Inspired by the vision of a sustainable future, we create eco-friendly solutions for groups of all kinds.
Our commitment to green meetings and events starts at the planning stage and continues through execution and cleanup. Combining our eco-efficient venues with our team’s expertise in incorporating customized sustainability practices takes meetings and events at our properties from good to green — and beyond.
We ensure our meeting clients stay happy, healthy and productive as another core tenet of our sustainability offerings. Between meeting sessions, attendees can revitalize the mind and body with a variety of resort amenities and activities.
We offer opportunities to extend sustainability beyond our halls by integrating social purpose activities into meetings and events. In connecting meeting planners with our nonprofit partners, we help facilitate volunteer engagements that offer lasting memories, while providing valuable community support.
Properties in Action
Renewable Energy at The Venetian Resort
One hundred percent of the electricity used at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas is powered by renewable energy. This landmark initiative uses energy credits from regional wind farms to offset the resort’s carbon footprint.
The Venetian Resort Las Vegas has eliminated single-use plastic items such as spoons, straws and coffee stirrers in Team Member dining rooms with substitution of non-plastic, sustainable or reusable options.
In partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature, Marina Bay Sands is helping fish farms in Malaysia work toward Aquaculture Stewardship Council certification and supporting community-based fishery improvement projects.
Sands China built a solar thermal hybrid energy plant atop the Sheraton Grand Macao. The plant generates enough hot water for the resort’s Sky Tower, including its 2,000 suites, pools, spas and kitchens.
