In 2016, BCD Travel became the first travel management company to earn a gold rating from EcoVadis, an independent, internationally recognized firm that measures corporate social responsibility performance. The gold status places BCD in the top 1% of all suppliers assessed by the ratings firm.
A new case study from EcoVadis outlines the steps BCD took to achieve EcoVadis gold:
Solidifying ongoing support from company leaders and integrating CSR into BCD’s corporate strategic direction
Educating and engaging employees worldwide in the CSR effort
Integrating CSR goals into all global operations, including partners and suppliers
Measuring progress using EcoVadis’ tools, and making adjustments to ensure success
