Corporate social responsibility
Powering meaningful change through innovation.
We understand that community counts, which is why we choose to lead by example
Geotab has—since its inception—abided by the adage, "Always do the right thing." As such, Geotab encourages and supports community involvement through a wide range of company-sponsored programs and initiatives. These efforts have been designed to positively impact our communities by working to create a better place for everyone to live.
STEM: Educating for the future
Geotab is dedicated to contributing to the burgeoning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) job market. In addition to developing programs that are geared toward the development of STEM skills - such as the free Geotab Research and Development Program for undergrad students, graduate students and faculty - we also hire students for summer internships.
Geotab brings in approximately 30-40 co-op students each year in a variety of departments and creates an opportunity for interns to work on interesting projects and partner with senior Geotab mentors.
Geotab sponsors and attends events that pertain to youth and/or women in STEM in order to encourage more young people in general to pursue a career in a STEM field.
Mentors participate from different internal teams at Geotab to attend events in the community and give guidance on what a career in STEM can look like
Women in STEM

Safety: Continuously advancing technology to create safer roads
At Geotab, we strongly believe in the power that technology has to create positive change, especially in the areas of driver safety. However, we also want to call attention to the importance of being aware while using technology, in particular when walking and driving.
Geotab promotes safety for both drivers and pedestrians through its Responsibility on Both Sides of the Wheel initiative. This initiative encourages pedestrians and drivers to put their #PhonesDownEyesUp and focus on the road.
Geotab is a member of Together for Safer Roads and Vision Zero. These safety organizations bring companies together while utilizing their unique assets in order to advance best practices and create a world where roads are safer for all people.
Education is critical to support change. Geotab presents at local high schools to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and walking.
Environment: Helping businesses reduce their carbon footprint
At Geotab, we take a comprehensive approach to environmental responsibility. We invest our efforts into preserving the earth’s natural resources through constant innovation and the efficient use of materials in our daily productions. Our advanced telematics technology and solutions make it possible for businesses to minimize their environmental footprint, by helping them reduce fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions, optimize routing, reduce idling and aggressive driving, and maintain optimal vehicle engine performance.
Geotab employees participate in environmental clean up initiatives in their local communities, as well as engage in sustainable office practices such as utilizing reusable notebooks and water bottles.
Electric vehicle advocate
Our offices are equipped with EV charging stations to promote the use of eco-friendly vehicles. Furthermore, Geotab has rolled out an EV Incentive Program to subsidize the cost of EVs for our employees.
We’re committed to producing as little waste as possible. This means using recyclable/compostable promotional products, recycling all the electronic components used in our daily production, and reusing any packing materials delivered to our offices.
We believe in getting our employees to work with the smallest carbon footprint possible. As such, we offer 100% reimbursement for employee transit costs.
