Neil Cawse, Founder & CEO of Geotab
As the world-leading commercial telematics platform for connected vehicles and assets, Geotab is unlocking the power of data to build a low-carbon future for a sustainable planet.
Committed to taking climate action
Our Impact Agenda
Sustainability is core to our purpose at Geotab. As a global leader in telematics, we have the opportunity to help address some of the greatest challenges facing the world today, including climate change and road safety. Our Impact Agenda focuses on three areas where we can make the most significant contribution:
Accelerating decarbonization in the transportation industry
Providing data-driven tools and insights to support fleets along their sustainability journey, and help them make progress on decarbonizing and electrification.
Powering driver and road safety
Connecting businesses and cities to intelligent vehicle and transportation insights to improve driver safety and reduce the risk of collisions.
Advancing progress to net zero through data, research and partnerships
Sharing knowledge and expertise, investing, and collaborating on projects to spark innovation and support efforts toward a low-carbon future.
Our approach to sustainability
As a participant of the UN Global Compact, Geotab aligns its operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The UN’s 17 SDGs are the world’s shared plan to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality and protect the planet by 2030. Our sustainability initiatives align to the following SDGs:
Goal 5: Gender Equality
Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
Goal 9: Industry innovation and infrastructure
Goal 10: Reduced Inequality
Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Goal 13: Climate Action
Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals
Building sustainable operations globally
We are working to reduce our environmental impact through waste diversion, procuring EPEAT-certified IT equipment, investing in EV chargers at our offices and other measures.
Creating a positive impact in our communities
Through Geotab Cares and corporate social responsibility initiatives, we partner with organizations to make positive changes in STEM, the environment and road safety.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
At Geotab, we are working together for an accessible and globally diverse, equitable and inclusive culture where differences drive innovative solutions.
Navigating our way to zero emissions
Understanding the urgency of climate action, Geotab has set a target to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040 — a decade earlier than called for in the Paris Agreement. Geotab is navigating toward a 50% reduction in emissions across Scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 2030 with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2040.
Science-based climate targets
To achieve our net-zero target, we are working collectively with other organizations around the world to rethink and redefine our actions so we can leave the world better than we found it. We are committed to reducing emissions across the entire value chain and have set science-based targets. Geotab has had its emissions reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
Our carbon footprint
In 2022, Geotab’s total carbon emissions increased by 7.7% compared to our 2019 baseline. We have seen a 4.4% reduction in Scope 1 emissions, a 34% reduction in Scope 2 emissions, and an 8.6% increase in Scope 3 emissions. Geotab is lowering greenhouse gas emissions through innovative programs to reduce employee commuting and travel, including the Electric Vehicle Incentive Program and Public Transportation Reimbursement, and new business travel guidelines, in addition to our flexible-first model for remote working.
