Mandalay Bay has dramatically enhanced sustainability efforts at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center by upgrading the lighting with top-of-the-line LED Lights that use 85% less energy. This tour will give an overview of this lighting project and give an opportunity to view the ceilings and lights in the Bayside Convention Center.

Recycling is a key part of MGM Resorts’ sustainability efforts. When visiting Mandalay Bay, you may notice that the resort does not have recycling bins in their guest areas. That is because Mandalay Bay does the recycling for guests behind the scenes.

Skyfall Lounge:
This part of the tour showcases Mandalay Bay’s solar project and the energy management as part of a core component of MGM Resorts International’s overall sustainability strategy. The organization works diligently to reduce their environmental impact and reductions in carbon emissions by decreasing the use of energy and aggressively pursuing renewable energy sources.
