Wynn Macau Ltd has been honored with the Grand Award in Sustainability and Social Responsibility at the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Gold Awards 2022, becoming the first integrated resort in Macau bestowed with this recognition, the company said this week.
The award recognizes Wynn’s array of sustainable development strategies and initiatives, as well as the use of advanced eco-friendly technologies.
These include the adoption of the “Winnow Vision” smart system to reduce food waste since 2019, Wynn’s partnership with premium Swedish water brand Nordaq to jointly design and develop the Nordaq 2000 Refilling System – saving an estimated 8 million plastic bottles every year, and dual certification from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Chain of Custody (CoC) and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Chain of Custody (CoC).
“As a leading hospitality brand, we believe that our signature award-winning service can and must be delivered in a way that respects our people, our communities and our environment,” said Rishi Tirupari, Vice President of Sustainability at Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace.
“This commitment extends beyond the walls of our properties, impacting the whole of Macau. We believe we can be a catalyst to promote boarder change and co-create a greener and sustainable future for tourists, for Macau’s people and for the next generation.”
PATA is one of the three largest tourism organizations in the world. Supported by the Macao Government Tourism Office since 1995, the regional PATA Gold Awards recognizes outstanding organizations and individuals in the tourism industry, acknowledging the very best that the Asia Pacific’s travel industry has to offer.
Winners are selected by an independent judging committee consisting of senior executives from the travel, tourism and hospitality sectors. This year PATA Gold Awards presented a total of two Grand Title Winners and 23 Gold Awards in recognition of the outstanding achievements of the winning organizations and individuals in the areas of marketing, sustainability and social responsibility.
