Geotab Inc. has had its emissions reduction targets validated and approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Geotab’s targets meet the criteria required to keep the global temperature rise limited to 1.5°C, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement.
It claims to be the first dedicated telematics company to have its emissions reduction targets validated and approved by SBTi.
Geotab published its inaugural Sustainability Report in 2021, committing to take climate action and moving the world toward a more sustainable future. Validated by SBTi, Geotab commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 50 percent by 2030 from a 2019 base year. Geotab also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions by 50 percent within the same timeframe.
“At Geotab, we don’t just believe in sustainability; it is the very core to our purpose. We are proud to be the first dedicated telematics provider to receive SBTi validation,” said Neil Cawse, CEO and founder of Geotab.
“We are committed to transparent measurement of our own carbon emissions, while supporting our customers and suppliers on their own journey. Together, we can make smarter decisions and do better for our planet.”
Geotab provides an EV Suitability Assessment (EVSA), Green Fleet Dashboard, Temperature Tool for EV Range and the EV Battery Degradation Tool.
Committed to safeguarding the future, SBTi defines best practices in setting science-based targets to help mobilize companies toward a low-carbon economy. In 2019 the organization launched, The Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign in partnership with the UN Global Compact and the We Mean Business coalition. The campaign is an urgent call to action for companies to set targets in line with 1.5°C and a net-zero future to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
