AT&T Partners on Transportation Emissions Program
AT&T announced that Geotab is joining its Connected Climate Initiative, a collaborative that works on connectivity-based solutions to reduce GHG emissions by 1 gigaton by 2035.
The telecommunications company is partnering with Geotab to combine Geotab’s telematics solutions with AT&T’s Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, according to a statement.
The effort brings together corporate leaders, universities and non-profit organizations to use connectivity solutions, including the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and edge computing, in order to reach this goal.
Geotab's data-driven insights enable customers to make decisions for better fleet management and sustainability outcomes. The company’s solutions include the Green Fleet Dashboard, a tool for improving a fleet’s fuel economy and reducing emissions, and the EV Suitability Assessment (EVSA), which offers data-driven recommendations to make the transition to electric vehicles as seamless as possible.
The combined technologies allow users to make assessments from a single analytics-based platform. This provides a whole host of benefits, including elevating efficiencies that help lower the overall fleet's carbon emissions.
Customers can track and manage fuel consumption and idling trends, optimize routes and coach drivers on fuel efficiency with a connected fleet platform that can simplify tasks and provide real-time performance insights to manage costs, while also reducing emissions.
