Marina Bay Sands in Singapore will be
working to reduce its environmental footprint after joining the international EarthCheck Benchmarking and Certification program
for environmental sustainability.
Marina Bay Sands Director
of Sustainability - Property Operations Mr Kevin Teng said the
company is committed to demonstrating environmental best practice across the property’s broad range of operations.
Bay Sands is an iconic property with an extensive array of
services and facilities and we continue to integrate environmental
sustainability throughout every facet of our business and being
seen as industry leaders in sustainability,” said Mr Teng. “Not only does this system enable us to compare our current
sustainability progress with our own branded Sands ECO 360
sustainability program, it also provides a framework for us to
continue to push the envelope when it comes to the improvement of
the sustainability performance of our building assets.”

square metre convention/exhibition centre, 74,000 square metres of
retail, a museum, two large theatres over 60 restaurants and

for extensive developments like Marina Bay Sands to recognise
their responsibility as tourism leaders and adopt best practices
for environmental, social and financial sustainability.
“Under the EarthCheck program, Marina Bay Sands will be taking a
scientific approach to benchmarking and are committed to report
their environmental footprint based on an internationally recognised standard that follows the Agenda 21 principles for sustainable development,” said Mr Moore.
