CWT has been awarded platinum status by EcoVadis, the independent corporate social responsibility (CSR) rating agency. It is the fifth consecutive year that the travel management company has achieved the top category for its responsible business practices and, as a result, is in the top 1% of more than 75,000 companies rated worldwide.
EcoVadis’ ratings evaluate companies against 21 CSR criteria, grouped into four broad themes including: environment, labour, fair business practices, and sustainable procurement.
Françoise Grumberg, CWT’s vice-president, global responsible business and diversity & inclusion, said, “This year, EcoVadis highlighted our continuous momentum in each of the responsible business themes and our reinforced commitment to fight against climate change with our recent signing of the science based targets commitment letter, alongside the introduction of ECO (employee well-being, climate impact and organisational performance) to help better clients' travel programmes for the good of their company, travellers and stakeholders, as well as for the greater good of our planet.”
