Dusit Makes Thaipatís ESG 100 List for 4th
Dusit Thani has been selected by Thaipat
Institute as one of the top 100 ESG performers among the 683
publicly listed companies assessed in 2018.
Established in 2015, Thaipatís ESG Rating Unit assesses publicly listed companies in
the areas of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) to find
those with outstanding sustainability performance.
Thaipatís sources of data include the listed
companiesí public disclosures in the form of annual filings (Form
56-1), including annual reports, sustainability reports and
sustainable development performance data. This is then used to
determine the 100 companies with the most outstanding performance
by industrial sector.
For the fourth consecutive year, Dusit Thani
has been placed in the top 100 companies in the service sector,
reflecting the companyís commitment to total quality management
and a solid strategy for sustainable and profitable growth.
ďWe are delighted to be named on the ESG 100 list for the
fourth consecutive year,Ē said Ms Suphajee Suthumpun (pictured), Group CEO,
Dusit Thani. ďThat we keep making the list reflects not only our strong
corporate governance, but also our commitment to creating
long-lasting value for all of our stakeholders by following our
three-pronged strategy for sustainable growth Ė balance,
expansion, and diversification. During the first half of
2018, we achieved our investment goals for this quarter by
establishing Dusit Foods Co. and entering the food business with
an equity investment in NR Instant Produce Co. (NRIP) Ė and we
also introduced ASAI Hotels, a new affordable lifestyle brand
aimed at the fast-growing market of millennial-minded travellers.
Following economic recovery in the tourism sector, we are
confident we will be able to explore even more opportunities to
add even more new revenue streams to our company.Ē
Is the Dusit Thani Bangkok closing, or not? If it is
closing, when will it close and is that date final - or could it
change again? Steven Howard of TravelNewsAsia.com sat
down with Khun Titiya Xuto, Vice President Operations Thailand and
General Manager of the Dusit Thani Bangkok, on 5 July 2018 to ask
her these questions and many more.
