Altira Macau, the first hotel property of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited and one of only five hotels in Asia to achieve 10 consecutive years of Forbes Travel Guide 5-star recognition for hotel and spa, has been honored with the Green Key standard of excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainable operations.
Altira’s latest achievement means that the entire Melco hotel portfolio in Macau, including Morpheus, Nüwa and The Countdown at City of Dreams, as well as Studio City Macau has been awarded the globally recognized standard of excellence.
Melco remains Macau’s first and only company to achieve this prestigious award. The Green Key eco-label recognizes commitment from companies in the tourism industry that comply with the rigorous environmental management standards as laid out by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). This accolade reinforces Melco’s commitment to sustainability as a core business philosophy, as reiterated in the ‘Above and Beyond’ strategy recently published in Melco’s Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Report; to embrace responsible development as a catalyst for growth and change in a positive and sustainable way.
Mr. Lawrence Ho, chairman and CEO of Melco Resorts & Entertainment, said, “We are delighted that each of Melco’s five hotel properties in Macau have been honored with the esteemed Green Key standard, recognizing the Company’s strategic commitment to making our entertainment and luxury hospitality offerings sustainable, positive and rewarding for all those involved. We will continue to advance the detailed, data-driven understanding of our impact, alongside our range of programs and targets to further unlock Melco’s huge potential as a force for good; to do well in the places where our guests, colleagues and other stakeholders live, work and play, in Macau and beyond.”
Launched in Denmark in 1994, the Green Key standard honors establishments’ promises to guests in their dedication to making a positive environmental difference. The standards expected of hotels are maintained through rigorous documentation and frequent audits. To date, 3,000 establishments in 57 countries have been awarded the Green Key standard of excellence.
