The Venetian & The Palazzo To Celebrate WWF's Earth Hour
The Venetian and The Palazzo will commemorate World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour for the eighth consecutive year by turning off non-essential lighting for one hour, including exterior lighting, rooftop signage and façade features.
Earth Hour is a worldwide annual environmental campaign that challenges organizations and individuals to turn off lights for one hour every March to show their commitment to global green initiatives. Around the globe, millions of people, businesses, and landmarks will set aside an hour to host events, switch off their lights, and make noise for climate change action.
The Venetian will celebrate Earth Hour in grand style in the Doge's Palace plaza, in front of The Venetian. The resort's official "Earth Hour DJ" will lead a countdown to the 8:30 p.m. start of Earth Hour, when all exterior building lights on The Venetian and The Palazzo will be turned off for one hour.
Team Members and guests will come together (while enjoying music and an inspired Earth Hour beverage) to create a planet Earth "mural" on the plaza using LED tea lights, beginning at 8 p.m. Free seed packets will be distributed while supplies last.
For the remainder of the evening (after Earth Hour), the resort will turn its exterior tower signs green.
The proud participation of The Venetian and The Palazzo is just one piece of the Las Vegas Sands comprehensive Sands ECO360° Global Sustainability program, which was designed to help minimize environmental impact and lead the way in sustainable building development and resort operations. Las Vegas Sands retains an industry-leading position on CDP's Climate A-list and Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). In addition, Las Vegas Sands was the highest-rated hospitality company in the world in the 2016 Newsweek Green Rankings.
