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

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 — revealing insights from real-world data to help customers reduce emissions and costs while improving operational efficiency. We signed The Climate Pledge, joining a group of companies and organisations that have confirmed their commitment to climate action. The only path to a net-zero carbon future is together.



Our Impact Agenda

Sustainability is at the core of everything we do 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 decarbonisation in the transportation industry

Providing data-driven tools and insights to support fleets along their sustainability journey, and helping them make progress on decarbonising 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 towards a low-carbon future.


Our approach to sustainability

As a participant in the UN Global Compact, Geotab aligns its operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and is committed to taking 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 with the following SDGs:

Goal 5: Gender equality

Goal 7: Affordable and clean energy

Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Goal 10: Reduced inequalities

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

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 towards 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 organisations 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.

Reducing carbon emissions

Our total carbon emissions decreased by 14% from 2019 to 2021. Geotab is lowering greenhouse gas emissions through innovative programmes to reduce employee commuting and travel, including the Electric Vehicle Incentive Programme and Public Transportation Reimbursement, and new business travel guidelines, in addition to our flexible-first model for remote working.
