CARLSON Wagonlit Travel (CWT) has been given a gold rating for its corporate social responsibility practices (CSR) for a second successive year.
The ranking was given by independent CSR ratings agency EcoVadis and puts CWT among the world’s top 1% of companies across all industries.
CWT was also given a rating in the top 1% for “fair business practices/ethics & compliance” within its industry.
“Our second, successive, annual gold rating for global CSR is testament to both us, and our customers, of the benefits of living the CWT values,” said Catherine Maguire-Vielle, CWT’s chief human resources officer.
“Responsible business is a core element of all of our customer relationships, and EcoVadis’ third-party gold certification publicly underlines our commitment to work to the very highest standards of ethics and conduct in all that we do.”
Francoise Grumberg, CWT’s vice president, global responsible business, said the rating recognised that CWT’s approach to responsible business focused on “all of the CSR issues that are most material for the business”.
