New GE LED lighting is helping Las Vegas Sands Corp. take another key step
toward curbing environmental impact at its leading resort and meeting
properties. As part of its Sands ECO 360^o Green Meetings program, Las Vegas
Sands has completed an expansive energy-efficient LED lighting upgrade to its
meeting spaces at The Venetian|The Palazzo Las Vegas.

Halogen bulbs in The Venetian|The Palazzo meeting rooms were replaced with
more than 5,700 energy smart® BR30 LED lamps. This will reduce the resort’s
annual electricity use by nearly 4.1 million kilowatt hours (kWh), saving more
than $400,000 in annual lighting costs that can be applied to other
initiatives demonstrating Las Vegas Sands’ environmental commitment.

The move to GE’s energy-efficient LED lighting solution further enhances Las
Vegas Sands’ comprehensive Sands ECO 360°Global Sustainability program that
features an array of best practices in four integral areas—green buildings,
environmentally responsible operations, green meetings, and stakeholder
engagement.

Las Vegas Sands first invested in GE’s LED and compact fluorescent lighting
(CFL) in 2010 at The Venetian|The Palazzo, where 7-watt PAR20 LED lamps and
10- and 15-watt CFL bulbs were installed in more than 7,000 guest suites.

As a result of GE’s more energy-efficient solutions, Las Vegas Sands has
reduced its annual lighting spend by about $2 million overall including
savings in suites and meeting spaces combined.

“The team at GE Lighting impressed us with the range of products that help us
conserve even more energy without sacrificing the high aesthetic standards
that our meeting and convention customers expect of a five-diamond resort and
meeting center,” said Norbert Riezler, senior vice president and chief
procurement and sustainability officer at Las Vegas Sands.
