Corporate social responsibility
Powering meaningful change through innovation.
We understand that community involvement counts, which is why we choose to lead by example
Geotab has--since its inception--abided by the adage of always doing 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 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) job market through a number of programs that are geared towards the development of STEM skills – such as the free Geotab Research and Development Program for undergrad and graduate students and university faculty, as well as hiring students for summer internship programs.
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
Geotab works with the community to organise and attend events that encourage women to pursue an education and career in STEM.
Our tuition assistance program encourages employees to pursue continuing education in order to enhance their skills and advance their professional capacity, which in turn allows for growth within the company.
An internal accelerator focused on empowering early stage businesses and innovative ideas that can leverage the Geotab platform.
Safety: Continuously enhancing technology to create safer roads
At Geotab, we strongly believe in the power that technology has to create positive change, especially in the area 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 it’s Responsibility on Both Sides of the Wheel initiative. This initiative encourages pedestrians and drivers to focus on the road and keep their #PhonesDownEyesUp.
Safety organisation memberships
Geotab is a member of Together for Safer Roads and Vision Zero. These safety organisations bring companies together while utilising 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
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 minimise their environmental footprint, by helping them reduce fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions, optimise 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 utilising reusable notebooks and water bottles.
Electric vehicle advocates
Our offices are equipped with electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to promote the use of eco-friendly vehicles. Furthermore, Geotab has rolled out an Electric Vehicle Incentive Program to subsidise 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 a 100% reimbursement program for employee transit costs.
