RESORTS WORLD LAS VEGAS RECIEVES LEED GOLD CERTIFICATION
LAS VEGAS (Feb. 1, 2021) – Resorts World Las Vegas is proud to announce that all three of its hotel brands, Las Vegas Hilton, Conrad Las Vegas and Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts, have earned Gold Certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The prestigious Gold Certification positions the resort amongst the best energy-efficient facilities in the world.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED certification is considered the benchmark in the green building industry, with only six other LEED Gold buildings within the hospitality and lodging sector in Nevada. LEED certification provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building strategies. The LEED Gold Certification encompasses nearly four million square feet of gross floor area within the Resorts World Las Vegas complex.
“A key pillar in our strategic plan for sustainability at Resorts World Las Vegas is integrating practices that have positive effects on the environment throughout all operations,” said Brandon Morrison, Resorts World Las Vegas Director of Sustainability. “LEED Gold Certification is a testament to our long-term commitment to help improve the environment while still offering premium accommodations and experiences for our guests.”
Since the initial stages, the development of Resorts World Las Vegas was rooted in the concept of green building. The property’s design team aimed to reduce environmental impact and achieve long-term sustainability through eco-friendly design. Resorts World Las Vegas will continue to integrate environmentally responsible practices into day-to-day operations and future planning for the resort.
