Moving forward, we aim to further improve our rating to achieve even higher EcoVadis recognition.

CWT was assessed through 21 CSR criteria in the areas of environment, ethics, social and sustainable purchasing performance and scored high across the board, with an exceptionally strong performance in fair business practices.

They have seen steady progress in score improvement over the past assessments.

We congratulate them on their silver rating and look forward to their continued success.
