The environmental impact of building operation over a lifetime considerably exceeds that of building construction. Implementing responsible operational practices reduces natural resource consumption and improves the experience of our guests and Team Members.
MBS reduce natural resource consumption through strategically selected energy, water, and operational efficiency projects. Our approach utilizes a combination of cutting-edge technologies and efficient equipment and appliances, as well as Team Member, guest, and supplier education.
At the core of Marina Bay Sands’ green initiatives is a S$25 million Intelligent Building Management System which automates lighting, heating and water supplies for the entire integrated resort to conserve precious resources. Also, recognised by the Public Utilities Board in Singapore as a ‘Water Efficient Building’, our water conservation effort includes rainwater harvesting and low-flow water taps.
We have achieved a 9% reduction in energy consumption since 2012.
Waste Management & Recycling
Our recycling and waste management program saves natural resources and landfill space, preserves clean air and water, and also creates jobs for our communities. Apart from enhanced waste management with over 2650 recycling bins on property and sustainable disposing of leftover food and materials, waste are segmented into organic and construction waste for proper disposal, and minimized waste with recycling and reusing of wood, metal and excavated earth.
Sustainable Products & Materials
When purchasing materials and supplies, we consider the relative environmental and health consequences of available choices. Our environmentally responsible procurement policy, which covers the areas of construction, renovation, and operations, helps us manage these impacts. We purchase sustainable products and materials wherever possible, including Energy Star certified equipment; eco-friendly cleaning products; low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) paints, coatings, adhesives and sealants; and carpet that meets the requirements of the Carpet and Rug Institute’s Green Label Plus program. This approach contributes to responsible use of natural resources and better indoor air quality for our guests, clients, and Team Members.
