Wynn Las Vegas Earns Four Green Globes




More big sustainability news out of Las Vegas: Wynn Las Vegas has announced that it has earned Four Green Globes, the highest certification given by the Green Building Initiative, a nonprofit organization that stimulates approaches to creating energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable buildings.  

To receive Four Green Globes, dozens of key environmental performance metrics were reviewed at both Wynn and Encore covering energy use and efficiency, water conservation, heating and cooling, waste management, emissions and pollution control, and many more. As part of the extensive on-site evaluation process, an independent third party inspected almost eight million square feet of facilities, including all common areas, guest rooms and suites, employee back-of-house areas, mechanical rooms, and exterior spaces.

The most recent energy advancement was the opening of the Wynn Solar Field in June 2018, a dedicated 160-acre solar energy facility that is offsetting up to seventy-five percent of the resort's peak power requirements, the largest percentage of renewable energy used by any resort in Las Vegas. The Wynn Solar Field will eventually be used to power the resort's new 280,000 square foot meetings and convention space expansion with 100 percent renewable energy.
