MGM MACAU Joins World Observance of “Earth Hour 2014”

Mar 29, 2014

[MACAU, March 29, 2014] MGM MACAU once again joined the rest of the world in the observance of Earth Hour on March 29, 2014, by switching off the lights within its property for one hour.  Organized by the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF), Earth Hour has grown into a global movement with millions of supporters in more than 7,000 cities across 154 countries since its inception in 2007.

On Saturday, March 29, at 8:30pm, MGM MACAU turned off its exterior lights for one hour, including the “MGM MACAU” signboard light on the building, fountain at the main entrance, exterior façade floodlights, spotlights at the Lion statue and LED screen at the North-East casino entrance.  At Six Senses Spa, all treatment rooms used ambience candles instead of electric lighting equipment.

"Promoting environmental awareness is at the heart of what we do as an environmentally responsible organization that is passionate about going green and helping save the environment.  We will continue to support activities such as Earth Hour in an effort to contribute towards sustaining a green and healthy planet for future generations”, said Mr. Grant R. Bowie, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited.

As the recipient of many environmental awards, MGM MACAU is committed to contributing positively to the environment and reducing carbon emissions.  Since April 2013, MGM MACAU has been one of the supporters of the “Earth Hour, Every Month” campaign in Macau, joining the other local resorts and hotels in a combined effort to stop and reverse climate change.
