Three Hotels at Sands China Properties Earn Macao Green Hotel Gold Awards 


Venetian, Parisian and Four Seasons continue as multi-year awardees


Macao, July 1, 2021)–The Venetian® Macao, The Parisian Macao and the Four Seasons Hotel Macao Cotai Strip have each earned a Macao Green Hotel Gold Award. The awards were announced and presented at an official ceremony Tuesday at the auditorium of the Environmental Protection Bureau of the Macao SAR, attended by representatives from Sands China and the three hotels.

Launched in 2007, the Macao Green Hotel Awards are organised by the Environmental Protection Bureau (DSPA) in collaboration with the Macao Government Tourism Office. The awards were created to raise awareness of the importance of environmental management in Macao's hotel industry and to commend those hotels that have adopted environmental measures. 

Since their respective openings, all of the hotels at Sands China’s properties have been on the list of awarded hotels since each hotel became eligible. 

 Additionally, Sands China is ranked for the second straight year in the top 10 in both the Hong Kong Business Sustainability Index (HKBSI) and the Greater Bay Area Business Sustainability Index (GBABSI). Run by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School’s Centre for Business Sustainability, the Hong Kong index charts the ongoing development and performance of Hang Seng Index constituent companies on business sustainability, aiming to encourage them to adopt corporate social responsibility as a progressive business model to achieve business sustainability. Also run by CUHK, the wider-reaching Greater Bay Area index is the first-of-its-kind business sustainability index for the region, seeking to further encourage sustainability among companies in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd., said: “Sands China Ltd. is honoured to once again be recognised by the Macao SAR government for our company’s achievements in environmental sustainability. Through continual research and local engagement, we have gained a better understanding of the salient sustainability topics in our business. We have incorporated these insights into our strategies within an enhanced overarching strategy structured around the three pillars of People, Communities and Planet – which guide the company’s efforts to lead the industry in sustainable operations.”

In April, Sands China released its 2020 ESG Report, highlighting the company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance at the conclusion of Sands China’s third five-year cycle of goals under the Sands ECO360 global sustainability strategy.

An initiative of parent company Las Vegas Sands Corp., the Sands ECO360 global sustainability strategy continues to help Sands China maintain environmentally sustainable operations, frequently earning the company recognition for its efforts.
