CWT, the B2B4E travel management platform, announced that its responsible business practices have been rated Gold by EcoVadis, the independent corporate social responsibility (CSR) rating agency, for the third year in a row. This puts CWT among the top 1% of over 55,000 companies rated every year, across 150 countries.
“Achieving the highest EcoVadis rating for the third year is a testament to CWT’s commitment to running our business in a responsible way,” said Françoise Grumberg, CWT’s Vice-President, Global Responsible Business and Diversity & Inclusion. “This success would not have been possible without the commitment and hard work of all our employees all around the world.”
Responsible business is a core element of CWT’s culture, and EcoVadis’ Gold rating publicly underlines the company’s commitment to work to the very highest standards of corporate responsibility.
“One of the reasons we have been acknowledged for is the significant progress we made in areas such as diversity and inclusion and anti-human trafficking,” said Grumberg. “Among our many 2018 achievements was the publication of a diversity and inclusion charter, signing up to the UN’s Women’s Empowerment Principles, company-wide training on unconscious bias, and our work to raise awareness about human-trafficking among our internal and external stakeholders.”
EcoVadis rates companies according to 21 CSR criteria, grouped into four broad themes: Environment, Labor, Fair Business Practices, and Sustainable Procurement. CWT’s performance in each of these four themes was evaluated looking at policies, actions, and results.
