Developed by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC), the LEED rating system is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. It recognises buildings designed, constructed, maintained and operated at the highest levels for improved environmental performance.

 

 

 

Ian Wilson, Senior Vice President of Non-Gaming Operations, Marina Bay Sands, said that the LEED green building rating system is a global symbol of sustainability recognition. It’s a world standard that sustainable operators aspire to achieve. With this recognition, Marina Bay Sands is now placed alongside some of the world’s most sustainable and innovative buildings. Being the first convention centre in Asia Pacific to be LEED Platinum certified it strengthens their commitment to lead the industry and inspire others to join us towards a more sustainable future added Wilson.
