Sands China Team Members Take the Clean Plate Challenge for Fifth Straight Year

Team members reduce food waste while learning healthy eating habits


(Macao, June 4, 2019)
– Sands China Ltd. team members completed the Clean Plate Challenge May 27-29, the fifth year in a row the company has held the sustainability promotion.


The three-day activity challenged team members at the company’s staff dining rooms to take only what they would eat and turn in a clean plate – a challenge that was completed a total of nearly 66,000 times. An initiative of the Sands ECO360 global sustainability strategy, the Clean Plate Challenge had the goal of encouraging team members to reduce food waste and inspiring them to live a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.


This year’s campaign added the message of “eat healthy, eat with no food waste,” and shared information on healthy diet habits with team members. The company’s food and beverage team supported the initiative by preparing meals with less sugar, salt and oil, and with a sample plate on display featuring the ideal proportion of grains, protein, fruit and vegetables for optimum health. Information was also given on healthy food preparation methods, such as steaming, blanching and baking.


“Reducing our carbon footprint is a fundamental indicator of our contribution to a cleaner environment and a more sustainable model of doing business,” said Mark McWhinnie, Sands China’s senior vice president of resort operations and development. “We are grateful to our team members who have a crucial role to play in carrying out the company’s Sands ECO360 strategies, and their participation in eco-friendly initiatives like the Clean Plate Challenge have a significant impact on our effort to run greener operations.”


Sands China’s Clean Plate Challenge is one of the many ongoing efforts of the Sands ECO360 global sustainability strategy, which utilises measures like energy saving, resource recycling, conservation and community engagement. An initiative of Sands China’s parent company, Las Vegas Sands Corp., Sands ECO360 is designed to help minimise the company’s environmental impact and lead the way in sustainable building development and resort operations.
