Responsible Business at CWT

How we act to be socially and environmentally responsible

CWT is deeply committed to sustainability/corporate social responsibility (CSR), which we call Responsible Business. It is important to us that our strategy focuses on the areas of most importance to CWT and our stakeholders. To understand their views, we engage with our employees, customers and suppliers on a regular basis and consider their feedback when deciding on the issues and opportunities to address and report on.

The seven most important areas for our Responsible Business strategy are:
