Geotab Joins the UN Global Compact
Geotab Inc. has announced that it has joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative. This initiative is a voluntary platform for businesses to develop, implement, and disclose responsible practices related to human rights, labour, the environment, and anti-corruption. Geotab is a global leader in connected transportation solutions.
By joining the UN Global Compact, Geotab is committing to aligning its business operations and strategies with the ten universally accepted principles of the initiative, which include areas such as human rights, labour, the environment, and anti-corruption.

“We are committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact, and Geotab is proud to join the initiative,” said Neil Cawse, CEO and Founder, Geotab. “The time for global leaders to unify efforts and address societal issues is now. By leveraging our shared values and principles to inform strategies, policies, and procedures and establishing a culture of integrity, we increase our chances of achieving a more sustainable, equitable, and ethical future.”
"With our signing of the UN Global Compact, we look forward to showing our commitment to taking action on sustainability across our organisation," said Chuck Van Kempen, Associate Vice President, Corporate Sustainability, Geotab. "By learning and growing with peers and partners from a global network of participants, all of us at Geotab will play a big role in ensuring that our community and business will be successful in the future."
Dave Mullaney, a principal on RMI's Carbon-Free Mobility team, said, "To deal with the threat of climate change, we need employers to take the lead. Geotab's participation in the UN Global Compact will make other companies more likely to join the effort."
