As featured in the 2015 Sands ECO360 Report

Team Members have played a very important role in the growth of our Sands ECO360 program. We continue to look for fun ways to engage them and make them feel informed and excited about sustainability. Every year, we host three global events: 

World Hunger Day – This event started as part of The Hunger Project, whose mission is to end world hunger and poverty. During this event, we encourage our Team Members to minimize food waste and donate food to local charities. 

Las Vegas Sands Recycles – The event is a collection of recycling, repurposing, and donation activities during the year-end holiday season. 

I Will if You Will – First launched by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), I Will if You Will is our annual challenge-based platform to raise awareness about energy conservation. 

The journey of I Will if You Will…

2011  - We participated in our first global Earth Hour by turning off all external lighting for an hour on March 26.

2012 - In addition to the traditional “Turn off the light” campaign, Marina Bay Sands started turning off exterior lights three weeks prior to Earth Hour. 

2013 - We adopted the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF’s) “I Will if You Will” campaign for Earth Hour. More than 2,200 Team Members participated. 

2014 - We adopted WWF’s “Use Your Power” slogan to communicate the power that each individual has to make a change.

2015 - This year’s challenge was a call to action for our Team Members to replace old inefficient light bulbs around their homes with more efficient alternatives. We collected more than 7,400 lamps from our Team Members.
