[December 27, 2018, Macau] Being Macau’s first integrated resort operator to receive
ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification in 2016 for MGM MACAU property, MGM has been recognized for excellence and leadership in the use of energy management to improve building performance over the years. Today, Mr. Peter Chan, Vice President of Facilities Management of MGM, was invited as the speaker for a seminar, titled “Energy Saving and Emission Reduction: A Management System Approach”, to share MGM’s success stories and project milestones with the industry.
During the seminar that was jointly organized by Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre as well as Office for the Development of the Energy Sector, Chan pointed out that, MGM has successfully achieved energy reduction via the ISO 50001 Energy Management system, with no sign of rebound. The energy data collected from the MGM MACAU property was crucial to the design of the Company’s new MGM COTAI, which led the property to achieve the China Green Building Design Label Three-Star Certification.
In April this year, MGM COTAI has become the largest property and the first mega-size complex project in Macau to achieve the China Green Building Design Label Three-Star Certification, which is the highest and most prestigious ranking in the Label. The accolade recognized MGM’s commitment to designing a property with environmental sustainability at its heart.
MGM strives to find innovative ways to minimize its impacts on the environment. Its dedication integrates environmental considerations into all operational practices, from its supply chain, to its facility management and guest rooms. In 2017, the Company reduced energy consumption by 34%, compared to its 2008 baseline, through various energy-saving efforts. Since 2013, MGM has decreased greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and water consumption by 16.4%, 16.7% and 10.9% respectively.
