“The second Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development was recognised as one of the world’s greenest and most sustainably-produced events in 2013, largely due to the industry leading commitment of our host venue and sustainability partner, Marina Bay Sands. For our latest event in 2014, Marina Bay Sands helped us to raise the sustainability bar even higher in many ways including real-time energy use displayed throughout the venue, a sustainable seafood meal for our dinner and further reduced food waste.”
