Travel management platform CWT has been awarded Platinum status by EcoVadis, an independent corporate social responsibility (CSR) rating agency. This is the fifth consecutive year CWT has been rated in the top category for its responsible business practices and the agency remains in the top 1% of over 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 for global responsible business and diversity and 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 (SBTs) 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.”
CWT has previously been recognised for strong Responsible Business performance receiving the EcoVadis gold award, the highest EcoVadis ranking at the time, three years consecutively, and thereafter the platinum award in 2020, a new ranking introduced by EcoVadis that year.
