Marina Bay Sands sets a sustainable standard
Marina Bay Sands has achieved the world-class Events Industry Council (EIC) Sustainable Event Standards for Venues Platinum certification, the highest rating possible, affirming the integrated resort’s (IR) commitment to sustainable events and operations.
The achievement comes after the IR became the first venue to be awarded gold in 2020 and adds to the property’s strong list of sustainability credentials, such as the LEED Platinum Green Building Certification, ISO20121 Sustainable Events Management System Certification and Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum.
“Marina Bay Sands is honored to have exceeded our previous gold achievement with platinum certification. As a responsible business operator, it is only natural for us to constantly seek new ways to reduce our environmental footprint and extend sustainable practices to event organizers,” said Sridhar Kandhadai, senior vice president, property management, of Marina Bay Sands. “The recognition strengthens our resolve to become one of the most sustainable venues in Asia Pacific, and we hope it sets the stage for organizers and delegates alike to create more purpose-driven events in the future.”
The standards, developed by more than 100 industry leading practitioners, place great emphasis on environmental and social responsibility. Applicants are assessed based on industry-wide requirements, such as sustainable procurement policy, and waste and water management as well as sector-specific criteria, including employee training and communication, and energy management.
