The sustainability impact of location technology

Together with our partners and customers, we're already seeing the tangible impact that location technology can have on the global sustainability agenda. Looking at the UN Sustainable Development Goals – a set of urgent environmental and social goals – we see three areas with huge potential.

Reducing emissions

Reducing emissions

Location technology is a valuable tool in the fight to contain climate change. Fleets, for example, can use location technology to precisely measure their carbon footprints. They can also rely on better geospatial awareness and routing to reduce emissions on the road – through efficiency, electrification or both.

 

Making cities

Making cities smarter and more livable

Cities are growing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be unpleasant, unhealthy places to live. Organizations are using location technology to tackle perennial challenges, like traffic, pollution and access to mobility.

 

Building resilience

Building resilient and inclusive infrastructure

Communities cannot thrive without considering their infrastructure. Location technology can reduce the cost and time needed to maintain and upgrade critical infrastructure like networks, roads and rails.

 

Building a world that is sustainable, equitable and that benefits everyone

We are committed to meeting our own sustainability goals and we're proud of the businesses that use our platform to reach theirs. HERE supports sustainable transformation across industries, whether it's fleets cutting emissions, cities curbing traffic or carmakers upgrading services for electric vehicles.

 

How we move our vision forward

Greenhouse gas audit

Greenhouse gas audit for net-zero benchmarking

HERE completed a comprehensive greenhouse gas inventory covering 2019 to 2021. This inventory – which will now be conducted annually – is a big step toward fostering further sustainable practices across the company and determining science-based emissions reduction targets.

Accountability & transparency

Boosting accountability and transparency

HERE has established an internal Sustainability Advisory Committee to drive greater accountability and transparency. In addition, HERE is publishing a wider account of activities under the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board reporting process. This is an industry-based set of reporting standards designed for investors and analysts to get a deeper view of our sustainable business activities.
