Galaxy Entertainment Group Takes Action in Support of Energy Saving in the “2011 Macau Energy Conservation Week”

Monday, June 13, 2011 – Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) continues to support environment and energy protection by taking part in the “Lights off 1 Hour” and “Dress Light, Dress Right” events hosted by the Macau SAR Office for the Development of the Energy Sector’s (“GDSE”).

On June 13 at 8:30pm, all inessential lighting fixtures on the building exteriors of GEG’s flagship StarWorld Hotel & Casino (“StarWorld”) and Galaxy Macau™ as well as the four City Club Casinos – Waldo, Grand Waldo, Rio and President, will be switched off. To further administer our energy conservation initiatives, team members are highly encouraged to carry out a greener and healthier living by making simple changes to their lifestyle habits and putting various energy saving practices into their daily lives.

Through the participation in the energy conservation activities, GEG can reinforce team members’ awareness on energy protection and also instill the importance of implementing various environmental initiatives on our daily work in the team. In the past year, StarWorld has implemented a series of Green Initiatives which include replacing 5000 light bulbs with LEDs that consume less energy and have lower carbon dioxide emission, using less water by adding water inhibitors in guestroom shower heads, saving and recycling refrigerants for air conditioning plants, cold rooms and fridges during annual maintenance.

In addition, GEG is proud to have launched the new “Galaxy Green” Program at our new integrated resort, Galaxy Macau which covers hotels, food and beverages, engineering, administration, procurement and all operational areas to save energy and water while reducing waste. The program includes installing a full insulation along the building exteriors to reduce heat transmission, using LED lightings in entertainment areas and T5 fluorescent tubes in back-of-house areas to reduce power consumption and offering Galaxy Green Employee Education Programs to team members to enhance their environmental awareness and encourage them to develop energy-saving habits from daily life.
