CWT delivers responsible business strategy

New report details significant CSR and sustainability milestones.

CWT is leading the way in the corporate social responsibility stakes, following the release of its latest Annual Responsible Business Report last month.

The company reached its third consecutive annual EcoVadis Gold rating and the United Nations Global Compact Advanced Level rating for its Annual Responsible Business Report. 

“I continue to be amazed at the way we weave responsible business into everything we do,” CWT president and CEO, Kurt Ekert, says. “I am proud of the hard work and commitment shown by our teams around the world.” 

Alongside the commitment to the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles, CWT recorded some significant milestones in 2018: 


  • Offsetting nearly 2,000 tons of carbon emissions and 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
  • Helping to combat human trafficking and child sexual exploitation by working with partners like World Childhood Foundation and ECPAT and sharing best practices at the United Nations and other forums
  • Running a digital advertising campaign on the myCWT platform, showing travellers how to report suspected trafficking
  • Launching two training programs on unconscious bias for all employees, globally, and non-discrimination for talent acquisition teams worldwide
  • Publishing the CWT Global Diversity & Inclusion Charter 
  • Updating CWT’s Responsible Supplier Code, which sets environmental, social, and ethical standards within its supply chain. 

CWT launched its Responsible Business Strategy in 2012 with a clear set of commitments and goals, to deliver responsible value to all CWT’s stakeholders – clients, travelers, business partners, and employees.
