Company’s emissions reduction targets approved and aligned with 1.5°C ambition.
Geotab Inc. (“Geotab”), a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, today announced that it is the first dedicated telematics company to have 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.
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% by 2030 from a 2019 base year.
