Carlson Wagonlit Travel gets gold rating from EcoVadis

Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), a leading global digital travel management company, announced its responsible business practices have been rated Gold for the second successive year by EcoVadis, an independent and internationally recognized corporate social responsibility (CSR) rating agency.

This rating places CWT among the top 1 per cent of all companies evaluated worldwide by EcoVadis, both within its industry and across all industries.

Within its industry, CWT was also rated in the top 1 per cent for Fair Business Practices/Ethics & Compliance.

“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.”

“This rating recognizes the fact that CWT’s approach to responsible business focuses on all of the CSR issues that are most material for the business,” added Françoise Grumberg, CWT’s Vice-President, Global Responsible Business.

“The Gold rating also recognizes the teamwork and commitment from across all areas of our business to further embed CSR deep into our company culture.”

EcoVadis uses a methodology that rates companies according to 21 CSR criteria, grouped under four themes: Environment, Labor, Fair Business Practices and Sustainable Procurement.

CWT’s performance in each of these four themes was evaluated looking at policies, actions and results.
