CWT, the business-to-business-for-employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, has joined the global network of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). As a long-time advocate of sustainable business travel, CWT will actively contribute to the important work of the GSTC through this partnership, according to a statement. The council promotes sustainable travel and tourism principles.
“GSTC is delighted that CWT joins the rapidly growing list of major brands that see the value in applying the GSTC Criteria and our programs as part of their commitment to enhance the sustainability of their extensive operations and supply chain,” said Randy Durband, Chief Executive Officer of GSTC.
With its broad portfolio of responsible travel products, services and measures to help customers attain their sustainability goals, most recently (in June 2022), CWT launched enhanced CO2 emission reporting to underpin responsible travel programs. This followed the launch of carbon footprint indicators in March 2022. Committed to building momentum for change in its industry for the future, CWT continues to work with pioneers such as award-winning carbon intelligence platform, Thrust Carbon, to bring further enhancements to its responsible travel consulting and portfolio.
“CWT has worked collaboratively with its customers and partners for over a decade to provide innovative sustainable corporate travel solutions and insights. We are thrilled to be part of the GSTC family, combining our efforts and influence to drive awareness and adoption of standards for sustainable travel,” said Charlie Sullivan, VP Product Management at CWT.
