Last week, Sands China signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Macau Fair & Trade Association (MFTA) on Global Exhibitions Day 2022 event (GED2022) at the Londoner Macao.
The Green Development and Carbon Neutrality MoU between Sands China and MFTA calls on both entities to promote and cooperate on the sustainable development of the convention and exhibition industry in Macau. Initiatives include the development of training programmes for the industry that focuses on green education, waste and usage of single-use equipment; reusing; and offsetting the carbon footprint when operating events in Macao.
Under this agreement, Sands China will also promote the upcoming 2022 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum in August. Held at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Expo, the event will also be Macau’s first carbon neutral exhibition.
