"The Marina Bay Sands MICE and Sustainability team have been extremely supportive and accommodating in helping the Joint Conference of HGM 2013 and 21st International Congress of Genetics achieve its sustainable event objectives. MCI is deeply committed to sustainability within its own enterprise and at client events. With a sophisticated approach to sustainability, MBS is the definitely the ideal partner for us in Singapore.
Despite budget and time constraints, the sustainability and operations team led by Kevin and Amanda were very proactive in providing greener solutions for the event. The conference's green initiative effort would not have achieved such a success without the strong support and participation from Marina Bay Sands."
Some of the commendable efforts we worked together with Marina Bay Sands included:
- Material Conservation: Enhanced waste management with recycling bins and sustainable disposing of leftover food and materials.
- Meeting Rooms: All coffee/tea/hot water stations utilised mugs, and all cool water stations utilised biodegradable cups.
- Meeting Rooms: Air-conditioning is set at a comfortable level without excessive energy use. In addition, lighting/air-conditioning was shut down after daily sessions ended.
- Community Engagement: Toy donation boxes which collected over 500 toys to donate to charitable homes in Singapore.
