On behalf of the entire executive team, I am pleased to share the 2015 Sands ECO360 Report. The past year marked the achievement of a significant milestone – completion of Sands ECO360’s strategic five-year plan. This report is a reflection of our journey.
While we started with baseline sustainability efforts in 2007, we accelerated our strategy around four pillars of the current Sands ECO360 Global Sustainability program in 2011. We also set five-year goals for carbon emission and water consumption reductions, along with recycling (diversion) rate improvement.
In celebration of Earth Day, we are proud to announce that our Team Members from Las Vegas, Macao, Singapore and Bethlehem completed over 26,000 green actions during our annual “I Will If You Will” challenge, initiated by our Sands ECO360 global sustainability program. The challenge encouraged Las Vegas Sands Team Members to take action to reduce their impact on climate change.

Our Sands Cares corporate citizenship program was recently highlighted in a Hotel Business Magazine article for donating $100,000 to five local nonprofit organizations in the Las Vegas area. The donations were part of the Sands Give-Back Bank, where Team Members from The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo determined which five charities they wanted to receive the donations.
In the casino, winning and losing is the name of the game. For Sands Las Vegas and its employees, giving back to the community is a win-win situation.
Sands Cares, the hotel brand’s corporate citizenship program, has donated $100,000 to five nonprofit organizations serving the local area. The Sands Give-Back Bank is its charitable giving initiative where employees at The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo Convention Center are encouraged and empowered to decide where the brand allocates the money.
Today is World Water Day and we are proud of the Sands ECO360° sustainability program and their numerous efforts to reduce our water consumption at our properties around the world. You can join in on these conservation efforts by reducing water usage through various methods. For example, simply using a low-flow shower head can save up to 15 gallons of water per shower.
