Galaxy Entertainment Group Once Again Joins Hands with Global Participants in the Campaign Against Climate Change

March 27, 2010

Galaxy Entertainment Group (‘GEG’) has always been supportive of energy conservation and as part of its commitment to sustainable development, GEG strives to create a better tomorrow by taking part in energy savings initiatives. This year, GEG once again extends its full support to the Worldwide Fund for Nature’s (‘WWF’) Earth Hour ‘lights out’ initiative. Between 8:30pm to 9:30pm tonight, all inessential lights on the building exteriors of GEG’s flagship StarWorld Hotel & Casino, the soon-to-open Galaxy Macau, and four City Club Casinos – Waldo, Grand Waldo, Rio and President, will be switched off.

“GEG is committed to promoting energy conservation. This year, we continue to support the WWF with our second year of participation in the global Earth Hour ‘lights out’ initiative. For the past three years, we have extended our support to the Macau SAR Office for the Development of the Energy Sector (‘GDSE’) through participation in various activities launched during its annual ‘Energy Conservation Week’. We believe that it is important that we participate in these energy conservation activities and that by making an effort, we can set an example for our colleagues, motivate them to work together and create a better living environment for Macau’s future generations,” said Mr. Michael Mecca, President and Chief Operating Officer of Galaxy Entertainment Group.

In addition to taking part in WWF’s Earth Hour ‘lights out’ initiative and participating in the various ’Energy Conservation Week’ activities organized by the GDSE, GEG has a set of internal guidelines aimed at energy conservation. To encourage employees to become aware of the issues surrounding climate change and help them establish better energy conservation practices, GEG asks employees to maintain office air conditioning temperatures at 25◦ Celsius. Furthermore, employees are also encouraged to reduce carbon emissions by shutting down all inessential power sources while resting or upon leaving their workstations and meeting rooms. GEG hopes that through its involvement, the group can inspire a greener culture and encourage people to better to cherish the Earth.
