The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas Turn Marquees Green on Saturday, April 22 in Honor of Earth Day
The Venetian®, The Palazzo® Las Vegas, and Sands® Expo will turn exterior marquee signs green to recognize Earth Day on Saturday, April 22.
The resort’s parent company, Las Vegas Sands, has been named the greenest hospitality company in the world, according to the 2016 Newsweek Green Rankings.
The property has a long history of committing to environmental conservation with The Palazzo being the first resort property in Las Vegas to achieve LEED Silver Certification for New Construction in 2008 and The Venetian and Sands Expo holding the distinction of being the only existing buildings in Las Vegas to have achieved LEED Gold Certification for Existing Buildings in 2010. Additional efforts made daily by the property include:
- One of the largest roof-top solar-thermal systems in the US can be found on property and is used to provide hot water for swimming pools and spas.
- The company saves more than 50 million gallons of water through the campus’s innovative cooling tower technology.
- The campus also saves more than 12 million gallons of potable water each year using the nano-filtration water system which is used for irrigation which allows the campus to be completely “off the water grid” for horticultural needs at The Palazzo. The Venetian campus was also awarded 2014 “Water Hero Award” by Southern Nevada Water Authority.
- During the construction of The Palazzo, 70% of waste materials were recycled, diverting nearly 42,000 tons from landfills. Steel made of 95% recycled content and concrete made of 26% recycled content were used.
- The campus recycles every available material possible (plastic, paper, glass, batteries, wood, cooking oil, aluminum cans, soap, toner, E-waste etc.)..
- More than 31,500 pounds of soap and bottled amenities are donated to a local non-profit, “Clean the World” each year which are used to build hygiene kits which are distributed to kids and families worldwide.
- All the unused and unserved prepared banquet food as well as Team Member Dining Areas is donated to multiple non-profit agencies including Catholic Charities and the Las Vegas Rescue Mission to feed people in need. Over 270,000 meals have been donated since the food donation program was launched in 2014.

Las Vegas Sands to Build 200,000 Hygiene Kits with Clean the World
On Sept. 26, 4,000+ volunteers and team members in Las Vegas, Pennsylvania, Singapore and Macao will work around the clock and across the globe to aim for a Guinness World Record while getting much-needed hygiene supplies to people in need
Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS) and international nonprofit Clean the World invite the Las Vegas community to join The Venetian and The Palazzo Team Members on Sept. 26, 2015 in an unprecedented 24-hour global volunteer effort to build 200,000 hygiene kits that will improve the health and well being of vulnerable populations worldwide.
The “Las Vegas Sands Global Hygiene Build with Clean the World” will be both organizations’ largest – and most ambitious -volunteer effort to date. The build will be held at LVS’ Macao, Singapore, Bethlehem and Las Vegas properties sequentially and all within a 24-hour period. The effort is part of LVS’s global corporate citizenship program, Sands Cares, and its ongoing partnership with Clean the World.
“For the first time ever, Las Vegas Sands properties are joining in a single and united Sands Cares event to help communities across the globe,” said Ron Reese, senior vice president of corporate communications at LVS. “This global kit build with Clean the World will help thousands of impoverished and homeless people who can’t afford or lack access to simple basics like soap or shampoo – including those in need in our local communities. These kits help prevent disease and promote good health and dignity.”
Interested community volunteers can sign up at http://vegasctw2015.eventbrite.com/for two-hour shifts to assemble kits. Volunteers can sign up for shifts during the following times:
Approximately 4,000 LVS Team Members and volunteers in Las Vegas, Pennsylvania, Singapore and Macao will help build 200,000 kits during the global build, which is underwritten by LVS and also receiving support from Sysco.
Each hygiene kit includes soap that was collected from Clean the World’s hospitality partners, including LVS properties around the world, and then recycled through Clean the World’s soap sanitation and processing equipment. Other amenities in the kit include shampoo, conditioner, a toothbrush and toothpaste.
LVS and Clean the World have a strong partnership built upon a collective commitment to help those in need and protect the planet. Since 2011, LVS and Clean the World have recycled more than 50 tons of waste from LVS properties into more than 550,000 bars of soap.
“Clean the World’s partnership with Las Vegas Sands has enabled us to drive the global hygiene revolution, and this global build will further accelerate our mission to reach thousands of people in the U.S. and Asia with hygiene supplies,” said Shawn Seipler, founder and executive director of Clean the World.
LVS’ partnership with Clean the World is part of the company’s global corporate citizenship program, Sands Cares. Announced in April 2014, Sands Cares manifests the company’s core corporate social responsibility focus: supporting people in the company and the hospitality industry, making local communities where LVS operates a better place to live and reducing environmental impact on the planet. Sands Cares provides a cohesive approach to corporate and property-level giving and support in local communities where LVS operates to address the most pressing issues in its local communities and help make them better places to live.

Las Vegas Sands Celebrates Sustainability Achievements with Environmental Report Launch Event
In celebration of the gaming industry’s first-ever independently checked Environmental Report, Las Vegas Sands hosted top sustainability activists, hotel executives and journalists with a green conference this afternoon at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas.
More than 100 guests attended the conference in the Veronese Ballroom to learn about Las Vegas Sands’ environmental achievements and pioneering green operations. The audience was addressed by a number of industry leaders both inside and outside the company, including Michael A. Leven, president and chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands; Norbert Riezler, senior vice president and chief procurement sustainability officer of Las Vegas Sands; Katarina Tesarova, executive director of global sustainability at Las Vegas Sands; Michael Luehrs, president of the Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC); and Doug Taylor, executive pastry chef for Batali & Bastianich Hospitality.
During the conference, Leven said that Las Vegas Sands has shown that it is possible not only to grow business in difficult economic times but also to be sustainable and responsible in company operations. He reaffirmed the company’s commitment to sustainability, asserting that he doesn’t want the company to accept the “status quo” but rather to keep pushing for “more palpable sustainability achievements” by 2015.
When discussing green meetings, GMIC President Michael Luehrs said that as an objective observer he was impressed by the green policies and procedures put in place by Las Vegas Sands at its resorts. The hope was expressed that other companies in the industry will follow the example set by these policies.
Chef Doug Taylor agreed, saying “sustainability is our responsibility to ourselves and to our guests and to our community; there’s no other way around it.” He went on to talk about the rapid expansion of local farmers markets in and around Las Vegas, and how the company has helped spearhead the effort to serve local, fresh, healthy foods at the resorts.
After the presentations, guests watched a documentary film about Sands ECO360, the company’s sustainability program, while they enjoyed a delicious and sustainable lunch from local farmers. Complimentary LED light bulbs courtesy of General Electric were handed out and guests were then taken on a sustainability tour to see first-hand how the company implements its green policies.

Today marked the seventh time Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Las Vegas Sands, hosted wounded veterans as part of The Venetian and The Palazzo’s “Salute Our Troops” weekend with the Armed Forces Foundation. Over the past six years, the company has hosted more than 600 veterans and their guests as part of the patriotic celebrations.
The veterans arrived by police motorcade today and were greeted with the cheers of more than 400 Venetian and Palazzo team members before arriving in the resort atrium for a grand welcome ceremony. Students from the Adelson School Campus sung the National Anthem while the Nellis Air Force Base Honor Guard presented the colors. Executives from Las Vegas Sands, Southwest, Armed Forces Foundation and Omaha Steaks addressed the crowd as well as NASCAR driver and local resident Kurt Busch.
The veterans were flown in from San Antonio Military Medical Center on behalf of Southwest Airlines and will enjoy three nights as VIP guests in all-suite accommodations, spa and salon treatments at Canyon Ranch SpaClub, tickets to Blue Man Group and Madame Tussauds and an evening at TAO Nightclub among other over-the-top amenities. Omaha Steaks will host an all-star cookout for the service members and their families and will present them with deluxe Omaha Steaks gourmet gift packages to enjoy at home with family and friends.
For the first time this year, tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with lead sponsor Capital One, will host “Hiring Our Heroes – Las Vegas,” a hiring fair to connect veterans and military spouses. Jobs are available for veterans and military spouses of all ranks and levels of experience.
