CWT has been awarded Platinum status by EcoVadis,
an independent corporate social responsibility (CSR) rating
In the fourth consecutive year of being
rated in the top category for its responsible business practices,
CWT is now among the first group of recipients to receive the new
Platinum rating, and remains in the top 1% of over 60,000
companies rated worldwide.
“It is humbling to receive EcoVadis’ top rating
for the fourth consecutive year,” said Françoise Grumberg, CWT’s
Vice President, Global Responsible Business and Diversity &
Inclusion. “Our colleagues’ commitment to driving progress in
areas and initiatives such as anti-human trafficking, the UN’s
Women’s Empowerment Principles, and unconscious bias training,
reinforces responsible business as a core tenet of our culture
here at CWT.”
EcoVadis rates companies according to 21 CSR
criteria, grouped into four broad themes: Environment, Labor, Fair
Business Practices, and Sustainable Procurement.
Platinum status was introduced by EcoVadis in
January 2020, surpassing the top standard of Gold with which CWT
was awarded in 2017, 2018 and 2019, having been recognised with
the Silver rating in 2016.
