Oakwood Worldwide, a specialist in corporate housing and serviced apartments that maintains an office in Chicago, has been recognized and awarded for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program.
The program has received a silver-level rating from EcoVadis, a collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings for global supply chains. Also, the Corporate Housing Providers Association recently named Oakwood Worldwide as the recipient of the 2016 Tower of Excellence award for best green progress, which recognizes a company exemplifying environmental responsibility and social performance.
The comprehensive program demonstrates Oakwood's commitment to CSR as the company aims to reduce its environmental footprint, ensure a sustainable supply chain, advocate for human rights and give back to the community.
“Our chairman, founder and CEO, Howard Ruby, has been a huge proponent of environmental conservation and he has been instrumental in making CSR an integral part of the way Oakwood Worldwide does business for many years,” Marina Lubinsky, senior vice president shared services, chief information officer and executive sponsor of CSR for Oakwood Worldwide, said. “What’s exciting for us is that we have elevated the awareness and focus on these elements, formalizing our efforts and enabling us to better tell our story to our clients, our guests and our associates. We are incredibly proud to have developed this industry-leading effort.”
