Toronto, Ontario (November 21, 2022) - Geotab Inc.

This EcoVadis bronze rating shows that Geotab is working to improve the environmental, social and ethical impact of our operations,” said Chuck Van Kempen, Associate Vice President, Corporate Sustainability at Geotab. “Data insights are key to making critical decisions to advance sustainability goals. Without data intelligence, it’s difficult to understand the path forward, including the actions that will have the biggest impact for organizations and society.”
