CAMPAIGN: Corporate Citizenship Overview 2016

CONTENT: Article

As we look back on our performance in 2015, I am pleased with the foundation we have built through our global corporate citizenship program, Sands Cares, since its inception two years ago. We are contributing to the betterment of communities worldwide by working on issues identified as most important to our company.

We believe corporate citizenship requires more than a one-time effort. It requires a commitment to do what we can to address issues of both local and global concern – whether that be committing our generous Team Members’ time, providing funding for critical programs, lending counsel to our partners or delivering other value that we can uniquely give to a cause.

An entrepreneurial company at the core, we know the effect of seeing a need and having a vision for how to deliver the solution. Our success has always been about capitalizing on opportunities, and we are applying that spirit to social and environmental impact.

Sands Cares is still in its early years, but we have now solidified our efforts around a few core challenges at the global level and within each region, reflecting a focus on the issues that are most authentic to our company and critical in our communities. This approach gives us the ability to make an impact, instead of scattering our resources across a number of endeavors.

Through deep partnerships in our communities, we have addressed issues from helping the homeless, improving education and supporting veterans in the United States to caring for the elderly, supporting social services and creating professional opportunities for people living with disabilities in Asia. We have strengthened our commitment to sustainability with external partnerships that lend our knowledge to our communities, and we continue to be recognized as a leader in sustainable business practices.

This past year, we have also amplified our commitment to our people with the introduction of expanded training and development programs across the globe, as well as continued to advance excellence in the hospitality industry as a whole with our university partnerships and other professional development commitments in our local communities. Our legacy to our people and to the industry is one of inspiring the best and brightest in this field.

I invite you to read more about these rewarding initiatives and the programs we undertook in 2015, and look forward to sharing how we are making a difference in 2016 and beyond.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Las Vegas Sands Corp.
