“At Geotab, we provide data insights to help companies accelerate their sustainability journey, and we are also walking the walk ourselves. 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 VP, corporate sustainability at Geotab. “Data insights are key to making critical decisions to advance sustainability goals.
