Drop by Drop – Nature based solutions for Macao

In 2020, in partnership with Clean the World Foundation, we officially launched The Drop by Drop Project, a brand-new Sands ECO360 initiative that funds innovative water stewardship projects.

In its first year, the project has engaged 1,200 students and community members in an awareness raising campaign, planted 180 lab-grown mangrove seedlings and conducted 30 mangrove field trips for local schools and universities, held 4 open lectures for the scientific community and launched a scientific exhibition.

Supporting local SMEs 

Our three-day, 500-booth Sands Shopping Carnival held in The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Expo was the largest shopping event of its kind in Macao. It provided a free business platform for 260 local SMEs and Sands retailers amid the pandemic period, while creating a new, weekend destination for local residents and tourists. Developed in a creative effort to support the Macao government's ‘Consume for the Economy’ initiative, the event attracted over 42,000 visitors and picked up an Innovative Exhibition Award by Macao Convention and Exhibition Association (MCEA).
