Melco Resorts & Entertainment has introduced the Nordaq water purification and bottling solution in its venues, including those in Macau, Cyprus and the Philippines.

As part of its sustainability strategy, Melco aims to reduce single-use plastic bottles with refillable glass ones.

Lawrence Ho, Melco Chairman & CEO, said: "Action with positive engagement continues to be of key importance in our approach to sustainability.

“In our drive to be an adaptable and forward-thinking business, and to contribute to a climate-fit and equitable future, Melco remains a signatory to the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative (GTPI), an initiative led by the UN Environment Programme and the World Tourism Organization in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

“We have been developing and enhancing our 2025 roadmap to address the root causes of plastic pollution within our operations, and as part of this, we are glad to have rolled out the Nordaq solution across our properties in both Asia and Europe.”

Once the system is fully implemented across all Macau properties, it’s estimated that this initiative will eliminate the need for around 14.8 million plastic bottles each year.

Johanna Mattsson, Nordaq CEO, said, "Nordaq, is a sustainability company focusing on eliminating single-use plastic.

“To transport water over water is one of the most illogical things we can do. We automatically shrink our own source and make it harder to get clean water.

“Nordaq provides, in my opinion, the world's most innovative and effective water solution for superior taste and less waste.”

The programme has already reduced the need for 1.4 million plastic bottles at City of Dreams Manila, and other Macau properties, since it started.

Mattsson continues: “We are proud and very happy about this joint journey together with Melco which will be the world´s first integrated resort to launch Nordaq water across its global resorts. Together we continue to embrace sustainable practices.”

This solution has also been launched at the City of Dreams Mediterranean venue, which opened back in June.
