LEED Certified Hotel
Qualifying to be LEED certified is based on 100-point scoring system with four levels of certification starting with certified, silver, gold, and platinum. There are seven different categories for a building to earn points: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation in operations, and regional bonus points. In 2008, The Palazzo was the first resort property in Las Vegas to achieve LEED Silver Certification and the largest in the country. The Venetian and Sand Expo® in 2010 are the only properties to receive LEED Gold Certification for existing buildings in Las Vegas.
