October 13, 2020

Minneapolis, 13 October 2020:  CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, has today published its September 2020 Responsible Business Report, showing continued momentum, including being awarded the newly established EcoVadis Platinum sustainability rating and maintaining the United Nations (UN) Global Compact Advanced Level.

“Maintaining our leadership position takes commitment and hard work from our colleagues across the globe,” said CWT President & CEO, Kurt Ekert. “We are deadly serious in our intent and I am delighted to see that we continue to push the envelope.”

The report covers CWT’s main 2019 achievements in its seven Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) areas: Ethics & Business Behavior; Human Resources and Human Rights; Environment; Responsible Products and Services; Community Involvement and Responsible Business Strategy and Governance.

Key highlights include actively:

  • campaigning against human trafficking;
