"Geotab's data-driven insights empower fleets to understand, act upon, and scale efforts in reducing emissions. We work alongside our partners and customers to reimagine how we value, protect and restore how the world moves, transitioning towards a net-zero carbon future. Geotab doesn't just believe in sustainability, it's at the core of our purpose. We're not just helping companies do things better — we're helping them do better things for our planet."
Moving the world to a sustainable future
In our first sustainability report, developed in alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and referencing Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, we outline our corporate sustainability priorities and ambitious targets for the coming years. We are proud of the progress and contributions we’ve made so far, and we look forward to sharing and building on our success in the future.Read our Sustainability Report
Committed to taking climate action
Data and technology are the key to measuring performance and making an impact. This is where Geotab, along with our partners globally, can make a difference – helping our customers, partners and suppliers to improve energy efficiency, conserve resources and achieve their climate change goals. The only path to a net-zero carbon future is together.View Geotab's Climate Change Position
On the path to a greener future
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do at Geotab, from striving to minimize the environmental footprint of our internal operations to developing innovative technologies that optimize the ability of fleets to go green. Our mission is to work with our partners globally toward a decarbonized and thriving future with a collective vision of net-zero emissions. Geotab’s four pillars of sustainability are:
Safeguard the environment
You can’t manage what you don’t measure. We used our 2019 baseline to set science-based targets to reduce Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 50% by 2030, and achieve net-zero for all three scopes of emissions by 2040 by managing direct and indirect sources.
We are committed to a sustainable and ethical supply chain, transparency, and upholding fair labor standards for all employees across our global operations, through the Geotab Global Partner Code of Conduct, and compliance and auditing processes.
Provide innovation that helps organizations do things better and do better things
Our greatest impact will be to help fleet customers operate more efficiently and transition to zero emission vehicles with the Geotab telematics platform and data-driven insights. By helping our customers increase efficiency even by 5%, that would equate to a decrease of CO2 emissions by 1.25 million metric tons per year.
Creating a positive impact for our people and communities
We believe in doing the right thing everyday — at work and in the community. Corporate social responsibility extends from our business practices to Geotab Cares, in which we partner with organizations to make positive changes in STEM, the environment, and pedestrian and road safety. At Geotab, we are working together for an accessible and globally diverse, equitable and inclusive culture where differences drive innovative solutions.
Our approach to sustainability
The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s shared plan to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality and protect the planet by 2030. Creating a positive impact in the communities where we live and work has been a priority from the beginning, carried out in our core business values and through our Geotab Cares program. Using SDG-principles, we have identified six areas of focus that we believe will have the greatest impact on our people, the organizations we work with and the communities we serve:
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.
To achieve this, 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 (SBTi) to achieve our goals.
The road to net-zero carbon
Geotab is navigating toward a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030 with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2040.
