27 October 2020, Bangkok – Mr. Keerin Chutumstid, President of the Property & Service Business Group of MQDC, received a “Gold” American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) CSR Excellence (ACE) Recognition for MQDC at the Conrad Bangkok hotel.
MQDC, the property developer within the DTGO group, has now qualified for the chamber’s CSR award for 6 straight years, earning “Gold” status given after 5 consecutive years.

The recognition was presented to Mr. Chutumstid by Michael George DeSombre, US Ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand, and AMCHAM President Gregory Wong.

Dr. Wit Soontaranun, EVP of Strategic Corporate Social Contribution for DTGO, the parent of MQDC, said that the company is driven by its mission of fostering smart and good-hearted people who help society. Leveraging its business potential to bring social benefits, MQDC allocates 2% of its revenues to support projects and social activities through its various charities and community initiatives.

The award is the achievement of everyone at DTGO, whose commitment to societal contribution enabled this record of success.

During the COVID-19 crisis, MQDC has run several programs to help medical personnel and frontline workers, as well as communities in hardship. “Forest for Life” by The Forestias by MQDC, for instance, has delivered 300,000 seedlings to make Bangkok a green city. The project is relieving suffering by hiring 1,000 families hit by the downturn to raise trees, shrubs, and vegetables. Participants gain market gardening skills for sustainable livelihoods while helping the city expand its green space.

MQDC has initiated “Food for Hope”, working with partners to distribute lunch boxes in neighborhoods most affected by the COVID crisis. The company has also supported the development of “Pinto”, a robot to help care for COVID-19 patients and reduce transmission risks.
