In a world where environmental issues and global warming are urgent, ABAX continues to reduce its operational impact while developing solutions that help our customers control and manage theirs.

Telematics and the environment
ABAX is mobilising around climate change directly through our core business. Telematics technology plays a key role in improving the impact that construction, transport, postal and municipal or public service sector assets can have on the environment. How? By connecting vehicles, equipment, and tools to the ABAX IoT platform, one can instantly measure and manage these assets more responsibly and sustainably.
ABAX measures CO2 emissions throughout the value chain. We do this for corporate and product emissions so that we can tackle emissions reductions on a granular level. Managing and offsetting remaining emissions is an important part of our sustainability contribution, and includes an eco-commute incentive program, and supply chain sustainability initiatives among others.
In total we have grown 200 200 trees in partnership with WeForest. This reforestation project was initiated in Malawi and positively reaches the livelihoods of the communities surrounding the mount Mulanje forest where the trees were grown.
Plastic pollution, in all its forms, impacts climate change and has negative implications for all environments. It’s why ABAX Driving Behaviour is an important tool for our customers because it reduces tire wear-and-tear, and micro-plastic pollution.
Each year our employees rallying around this issue by cleaning up harbors, beaches, and waterways and promote environmental awareness in our communities.
Diverting plastic from the environment
In partnership with Empower, Trash Mongers and Ecodrop, we diverted
1 000 000 plastic bottles from landfill. The recycled bottles are then sold on the open market increasing the availability of recycled plastics as a raw material for production and further develops legitimate recycling operations in remote locations.
Climate Neutral Now
ABAX has pledged climate neutrality to The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change UNFCCC. Their aim is to promote global climate neutrality and achieve the Paris Agreement goal of remaining under 2 degrees Celsius with the aim of a maximum of 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
Gold level achievement will be available to us when we choose to certify our calculations.
