The SANDS ECO360° Meetings programme is a holistic approach to providing environmentally preferable choices and options to our meeting planners and clients. The programme offers a number of ways to reduce the environmental impact of the event. As an event planner, you will benefit from three areas:

  • High-performance facilities: The Venetian Macao has earned the Macao Green Hotel Gold Award by the Environmental Protection Bureau of Macao. At our high-performance building, we focus on energy conservation, water conservation, and using products and materials with minimum indoor polluting contaminants.
  • Standard sustainable practices: Standard sustainable practices, which are implemented seamlessly into our operations, include resource conservation, air quality pollution prevention, recycling, and sustainable purchasing procedures. These practices add value to your sustainable event without any additional work or cost required from you.
  • Green Meeting Options: We have a menu of optional services to make your event even greener. The Green Meeting Concierge will customise our offering to meet your sustainability goals. After the event, we will provide a Sands ECO360° Event Impact Statement; this comprehensive report covers energy and water consumption, recycling rate, carbon emissions and highlights of sustainable initiatives - all in one place.
