Due to the large ground space used by ground-based casinos, electricity usage is extremely high, which contributes negatively to the energy crisis. But as with most green initiatives, casinos are becoming more active in changing their ways and being environmentally friendly.
These casinos are among the leaders of ground-based eco-friendly gambling operations.
The Venetian Macau – Macau
The Venetian Macau has long been one of the most eco-conscious casinos in the world with a dedicated sustainable approach that they demonstrate through parking for electric vehicles, reducing waste, using organic and environmentally friendly mattresses, and switching to LED lighting. With LED lighting, the casino has reported having saved enough electricity to power 50000 households for a year.
Melco Resorts and Entertainment – Europe and Asia
Melco Resorts and Entertainment have pledged to ban single-use plastic entirely between employees, operations, and guests and have further developed plans to deal with reusable, compostable, and non-re-usable materials.
Mandalay Bay Resort – Las Vegas
Mandalay Bay is operated by MGM Resorts, which is one of the leaders in eco-friendly gambling. Using local ingredients for food, saving on waste, and recycling are just some of the ways in which Mandalay Bay Resort is pledging to the environment and becoming one of the leading eco-friendly casinos.
Caesars – Las Vegas
Caesars palace is not only active in saving energy in their casinos but has also donated 2.3 million bars of soap to people across 100 countries. The soap initiative is done in partnership with Clean the World. The casino won the Environmental Leader Award for its eco-friendly efforts and has invested more than $70million on energy conservation projects.
The gambling industry as a whole is greatly reducing its carbon footprint and becoming greener through many initiatives, such as live casino bonus gaming that is achieved through online gambling rather than travelling to ground-based casinos.
