Energy-Efficient Initiatives

Atlantis is dedicated to maintaining and improving energy-efficient practices to reduce its carbon footprint. Our ongoing efforts have earned Green Building Initiative's Four Green Globes certification and Nevada Hotel Lodging Association's .Sustainability Leading Company.

Our energy-efficient efforts include energy-efficient lighting, variable speed drives on heating and cooling water pumps, and a state-of-the-art energy management system.

This includes installing new shower heads in 100% of guest rooms, saving over over 1.7 million gallons of water a year, replacing all faucets across the property, reducing water flow from 2.0 GPM (gallons per minute) to an impressive 1.0 GPM and updating all incandescent light bulbs with LEDs property-wide, saving over 6 million kilowatts/hour since 2005.

Recycling Initiatives

Atlantis has an integrated environmental solutions plan that includes an organics recycling program, single-stream recycling program, and biodiesel fuel recycling program.

  • Atlantis was the first casino in northern Nevada to launch an organics recycling program. Through this initiative, food scraps and other organic materials are separated and diverted from the traditional waste stream and processed into compost.
  • Atlantis has a single-stream recycling program to capture additional materials from the waste stream. This program allows recyclable materials, such as cardboard, chipboard, paper, plastics, aluminum, and steel cans to be deposited into one container.
  • Atlantis recycles its kitchen vegetable oil (cooking oil) waste to make biodiesel fuels, which can be used in place of petroleum diesel fuel for vehicles. Biodiesel is a renewable resource that creates less pollution than petroleum diesel.
Air Quality

Atlantis is sensitive to its guests who want a place to play, but prefer to do so in a non-smoking area. The installation of a state-of-the-art ventilation system allows engineers to control and monitor the property's air circulation. In ideal weather conditions, the system brings in 100% fresh air.
