In support of the Macau SAR government’s “Dual Carbon” goals and low carbon policy, integrated resort MGM Macau is making big strides towards sustainability by converting into natural gas for its daily operations.
The change-up was officially launched in the recently held “MGM Natural Gas Conversion Completion Ceremony,” which was attended by officials supporting green energy, including Nam Kwong Group’s Chen Weijun, MGM China’s Kenneth Feng, and the Environmental Protection Bureau’s Tam Vai Man.
This makes MGM Macau the first hotel in the city to make the switch and the first integrated resort operator to adopt clean and low-carbon natural gas in all its properties. It also supports MGM Macau’s ongoing efforts towards utilising green energy since 2021.
The shift is expected to reduce over 550 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in Macau, which equates to planting about 24,000 trees, MGM said in a press release.
MGM Macau also highlighted its commitment to continue its green energy initiatives by using solar energy and switching to electric shuttle buses in the near future.
This follows Macau SAR’s Taipa-Macau Peninsula Natural Gas Cross-Sea Pipeline project, launched in March 2022, which strengthened the region’s ability to use natural gas.
