With its ongoing water struggles, the vast amounts of energy and resources going toward recreating cities such as Paris and Venice, and its bawdy reputation as a party town, sustainability is the last topic that comes to mind when thinking about Las Vegas. But Sin City is drenched in sun, and the ample roof space throughout the city offers the local hospitality sector opportunities to reduce costs via solar power and demonstrate it can be a more responsible industry. To that end, MGM Resorts International announced last week it has completed the installation of what it’s calling the world’s largest rooftop solar array on a convention center.

The Business of a Better World

Communications can play a dual role in improving sustainability impacts: They alert us to problems, persuade us about solutions, and help us spur actions now, and at the same time, they shape our values and perceptions in the longer term. This makes sustainability communications crucial to anyone who wants to transform business models, consumer behavior, or even whole industries.
