CWT focuses on making responsible business matters as accessible and transparent as possible, and uses the EcoVadis assessment as a tool to communicate the importance of these issues with their employees internally. The benchmarking tool, a feature of the EcoVadis Premium Subscription, allows companies to compare their results across all CSR themes (environment, human rights, labor practices and supply chain). CWT has found the benchmarking tool particularly valuable in establishing and differentiating their brand’s positioning within their market, and also as a goal-setting tool to drive further internal improvements, by being able to compare to industry norms and global initiatives.
