CWT celebrates rating its Responsible Business Report and CSR work
Travel management platform CWT has published its June 2019 Annual Responsible Business Report, as the company reached its third consecutive annual EcoVadis Gold rating and the UN Global Compact Advanced Level rating for its annual Responsible Business Report.
A self-congratulatory corporate press release trumpeted a successful year for CWT’s CSR policies. “I continue to be amazed at the way we weave Responsible Business into everything we do,” said CWT’s President and CEO Kurt Ekert. “I am proud of the hard work and commitment shown by our teams around the world.”
CWT claimed significant milestones in 2018, including:
- Offsetting nearly 2,000 tons of carbon emissions
- Enabling the protection from deforestation of more than 2,300 tropical trees
- 99% training completion of CWT’s Code of Business Ethics and Conduct among its 18,000+ employees.
CWT also said it had been working to combat human trafficking and child sexual exploitation by working with partners like the World Childhood Foundation and sharing best practices at the United Nations and other forums. CWT also reported updating its Responsible Supplier Code, designed to set environmental, social, and ethical standards within its supply chain.
