Environmentally Responsible Operations

Pushing to be an industry leader in environmentally responsible operations, we aim to minimize the environmental impacts from our energy and water use, find alternatives to sending our rubbish to landfills, streamline the transportation services we offer, and provide our guests sustainable menu choices.

Highlights

Energy
In 2018, we accomplished 14 energy efficiency projects, resulting in a 26.3 million kilowatt hour reduction.
Transportation
We set a two-year vehicle replacement plan. Our target is for all our own guest shuttle buses to run on compressed natural gas or electric motor by 2021.
Water
Our Vice President of Housekeeping for The Venetian Macao, The Parisian Macao and Sands Cotai Central together with our towel supplier produced a new line of bath linen with a plush inner fabric with a thin decorative border. With the reduced overall weight, we can save on water use, energy and cleaning detergent at each wash.
Food
Between 2017 and 2018, we saw a 400% increase in the amount of organic produce purchased.
Waste
Property-wide, we have set a goal to increase waste diversion by 5% by 2020, compared to 2015.
In 2018, 4,613 tons of waste was diverted through various recycling programs.
Food Waste
Since 2015, we have recorded a 58% reduction in food waste during our bi-annual Clean Plate Challenge.
In 2018 we launched a new pilot program with Dehydra technology, a food digester that has the ability reduce the weight of food waste up to 70%.
Construction Waste
Globally, we closely monitor waste generated from construction sites, making conscious efforts to divert waste from landfill.
Procurement
In 2018, 22% of our operating supplies spend was on sustainable products, including paper, linen, office and cleaning supplies.
