CENTEL also achieved an outstanding ‘A’ rating in the MSCI ESG Ratings assessment, a testament to its robust ESG practices. MSCI ESG Research, a globally recognised authority, provides in-depth research, ratings and analysis of the ESG-related business practices of thousands of companies worldwide, and evaluates companies on a scale from AAA to CCC based on their exposure to industry-specific risks and their ability to manage these risks relative to peers. This rating reinforces Centara’s position as a leader in the hospitality industry, where sustainability is a core focus and a driving force in its operations.

 

For the sixth consecutive year, Centara made the Thailand Sustainability Investment (THSI) list, now known as the SET ESG Ratings, with 2023 marking the first year the company received an ‘A’ ranking for this accolade.
