About Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC)

RISC’s goal is to generate and develop ideas and innovations through local and international collaboration to improve quality of life for all beings.

Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC) invests in research to create environment-friendly property developments that enhance quality of life for residents, neighboring communities, and wider society. This commitment is fulfilled through collaboration between the property development teams and the Research & Innovation for Sustainability Center (RISC).

RISC is a knowledge-sharing environment where researchers in science, engineering, industrial design, and art devise environmentally and socially sustainable solutions for healthier ecosystems.

The center serves as a resource for society, dedicated to reducing the impact of our lifestyles on the environment. It also provides publicly accessible data and information that can improve methods and materials across the property development sector.


To contribute to the happiness of all living beings and help maintain a sustainable and resilient environment through research and innovation.


To create a knowledge-sharing research and development center and cultivate world-class researchers with a focus on sustainable developments.
