Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand’s leading hotel operator, is proud to announce four remarkable sustainability achievements that underscore its commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) excellence.

As part of the TRT Hotels, Resorts & Cruise Lines Industry, Central Plaza Hotel Public Company Limited [CENTEL], Centara’s parent company, has been recognised as an ‘Industry Mover’ in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook 2024 for its exceptional sustainability practices. This prestigious recognition spotlights companies that have achieved at least a five percent increase in their S&P Global 2023 Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA Score) and demonstrated the strongest improvement within their industry. CENTEL achieved a CSA Score of 60/100, marking a twelve-point rise from the previous year and positioning the company in the top 15% of its industry. This score was part of the S&P Global 2023 CSA assessment, which covered 62 industries, and 9,400 companies, and analysed 174,000 documents along with 16.5 million data points.


Central Plaza Hotel Public Company Limited [CENTEL], Centara’s parent company, 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, ensuring a positive impact to communities and guests around the world.


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. These high-profile ratings are an esteemed recognition presented by The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) highlighting the ongoing efforts of businesses to integrate sustainability into their business strategy, fostering long-term value for stakeholders and contributing to environmental and societal well-being. Centara is one of 193 companies out of a total 262 participants to receive this honour.
