LAS VEGAS—Las Vegas Sands Corp. will release the first Environmental Report in the gaming industry to be formally verified by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). GRI is the most prominent reporting standard used today and provides a practical method for breaking down reporting requirements such as management approach to economic, environment and social sectors.
The Environmental Report is an integrated study of the company’s green building designs, environmentally responsible operations, green meetings and stakeholder engagement. The report will be launched during an event being held at The Venetian Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Sands has spearheaded environmental sustainability practices across the hospitality industry through its comprehensive Sands Eco 360° program; designed to help minimize environmental impact globally at each of the company’s resort destinations including The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas; Sands Macao, The Venetian Macao and Sands Cotai Central in Macao, China; Marina Bay Sands in Singapore; and Sands Bethlehem in Pennsylvania.
“Sands Eco 360° has pioneered many leading green technologies and processes in our industry,” said Michael A. Leven, president and chief operating officer for Las Vegas Sands. “Our responsibility to the planet is as important to us as our commitment to the comfort and well-being of our guests and team members. I’m looking forward to sharing our recent accomplishments and ongoing strategies to make an even greater impact.”
