Sustainable company


As a global business, we contribute to society through our technologies. We embrace our responsibility to not only minimize our negative impact, but also maximize the positive one. We do so by giving back to the communities in which we work and live.


In 2020, we started tracking progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that best align with TomTom's vision, namely SDG 4 Quality education, SDG 5 Gender equality and SDG 11 Sustainable cities and communities. To do so, we adopted the SDG Action Manager, developed by B Lab and the United Nations Global Compact.

TomTom has implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS), which helps us in our efforts to continuously improve our responsible business practices and supports our vision.

The EMS is compliant with the requirements of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001:2015. TomTom’s EMS aims to support the business by meeting legal requirements, industry standards, customer/stakeholder requirements and expectations, by minimizing our environmental impact and maximizing our positive contribution to the community we work and live in.

TomTom’s ISO 14001 certification for the ‘Development, production management, delivery and sales of digital maps, traffic & navigation software, hardware products and services’ expired in 2020. TomTom is planning to get ISO 14001 re-certified in March 2021, after a short certification gap in 2020 due to the complicated global situation and our aim to integrate EMS into our ISO9001 quality management system.

TomTom has been a member of the RBA since 2012. We are committed to upholding the standards set out in the RBA Code of Conduct, as stated in our RBA Commitment Letter. We have also adopted the code as part of our sustainability strategy.
