We are committed to having human, ethical, responsible, and transparent conduct both internally and externally in order to ensure that the resources we rely on are used in a way that allows future generations to meet their needs.
CTW’s strategy is structured around three dimensions and commitments representing the areas where we aim to have a sustainable impact.
We develop and care for people while promoting a diverse and open culture.
We foster social-economic impact through promoting education across different generations, engaging and reskilling women in tech, and supporting local businesses.
We are focused on reducing our impact on the environment by reducing our carbon emissions, use of renewable energies, raising internal awareness, contributing to materials circularity and cities’ sustainable mobility systems.
We have assumed a voluntary commitment to act ethically and contribute to developing two important socially responsible missions. Its execution goes beyond our immediate business activities and surpasses what is legally required of our company. These two missions translate our most genuine concern towards our people’s, local communities and society’s sustainable development.
Women and Inclusive Education
To close the gender gap of Women in Tech by fostering motivation, equity and inclusion through reskilling, education, and equal opportunities.
According to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, the proportion of women enrolled in engineering, manufacturing, and construction programs at the tertiary level (college or university) increased from 28% in 2012 to 32% in 2018.
This suggests a slow but steady increase in women pursuing engineering degrees globally. More efforts are needed to encourage and support women in pursuing engineering careers and to address the gender biases and barriers in the field.
That’s not right and not sustainable. We want to participate in the change!
We commit to better living conditions, intercultural understanding, and better respect for life with those around us. We foster sustainable business practices that create a social and economic impact on local communities and participate in the social flourishing of our communities and their people.
The Survey on Income and Living Conditions held in 2021 on previous year incomes shows that 18.4% of the population was at risk of poverty in 2020, 2.2 percentage points (pp) more than in 2019. The at-risk-of-poverty rate in 2020 corresponded to the proportion of inhabitants with an annual net equivalent monthly monetary income below EUR 554.
The increase in the at-risk-of-poverty was more severe for women (plus 2.5 pp, from 16.7% in 2019 to 19.2% in 2020), particularly for older women. Having a job is no guarantee of not being poor and Portugal is, in fact, among the countries in Europe with the highest risk of poverty among workers.
We want to contribute to the well-being of the ones around us!
