Driving a sustainable future

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

Sponsoring the Vattenfall Solar Team, TomTom contributed technology and expertise to the world’s first intelligent solar car. The team won both the Sasol Solar Challenge 2018 and the award for Innovation and Technology.

Sustainable company

We are committed to supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that best align with TomTom's vision (SDG 4 Quality education, SDG 5 Gender equality, and SDG 11 Sustainable cities and communities) and have identified specific UN targets to drive progress to through our operations:

  • Target 4.4: By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.

  • Target 5.5: Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life.

  • Target 11.6: By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management.

In 2021, we are setting concrete TomTom operational targets that contribute to achieving the long-term UN SDG targets, firstly focusing on SDG 5 with our newly developed Diversity & Inclusion strategy.

In our TomTom Automotive business, we have integrated environmental management into our quality management system (QMS), which helps us in our efforts to continuously improve our responsible business practices and achieve our vision.

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

TomTom Automotive has been ISO 14001 certified for the ‘Sales, development and delivery of digital maps, navigation software, and services’ since March 2021. TomTom’s previous ISO 14001 certification expired in 2020. The new management system and certification represent the software focus of the company.
