CalAmp and the Environment

CalAmp is committed to acting in an environmentally responsible manner with regard to our technologies, solutions, operations, decision-making, and business activities worldwide. Our employees support that commitment by:
  • Ensuring that our technologies and solutions comply with all applicable environmental laws and regulations,
  • Responsibly managing the use of hazardous materials in our operations and products.
  • Requiring suppliers, partners, and contractors of our environmental expectations and encouraging them to adopt sound environmental management practices, and
  • Striving for continuous improvement in its environmental, health and safety management systems and in the environmental quality of its products, processes, and services.

Enabling Sustainability

  • CalAmp’s telematics technologies and solutions empower our global customers to minimize their environmental footprints, by helping them increase fuel efficiency, reduce fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions, optimize routes with less miles being driven, reduce engine idling and aggressive driving, and maintain optimal vehicle engine performance. Our technologists continue to pioneer innovative technologies and solutions to support the sustainability of businesses of all sizes. Here are just a few examples of how we help protect the environment and build a green economy:
  • We partnered with Swiftmile, a pioneer in light electric vehicle charging systems, to deliver the first solar-powered parking and charging stations for the burgeoning micro-mobility market. The stations, integrated with CalAmp telematics cloud services, will capture telematics data from most major electric scooters (e-scooters) and electric bikes (e-bikes) to improve micro-mobility management, reduce traffic congestion, and minimize the carbon footprint for environmentally conscious municipalities and enterprises.
  • We partnered with OjO Electric for an e-scooter sharing program focusing on safety and more sustainable last-mile transportation through collaborations with local municipalities to ensure OjO e-scooters are safe for riders, as well pedestrians, with speed reduction alerts and fleet management capabilities to provide a transit solution that reduces urban litter, keeps citizens safe on the roads, and reduces traffic congestion.
  • Our customer, Lansing, Michigan’s publicly owned Board of Water & Light (“BWL”) turned to CalAmp for its fleet management solution. BWL’s initial estimate of field worker productivity projected that the implementation of our solution could result in gains of more than 2% through the automation of work assignments, outage management, time reporting and other factors. This gain of approximately 10 minutes per technician per day, translates into a projected potential cost savings of over $750,000 in the first year of service, increasing to $2.5 million in the third year. BWL estimated that fuel cost reductions of up to 30% percent, or $12,000/month—an annual savings of $144,000—through increased scheduling and routing efficiency.
  • Under the California Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (known as SB20), CalAmp collects a fee from the consumer at the time of purchase to reimburse registered collectors and recyclers for the electronic devices that they collect and recycle in California.
  • Under California Proposition 65, officially the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, we provide warnings to California consumers when they might be exposed to chemicals identified by the State of California as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The warnings are intended to help California consumers make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use.

Responsible Mineral Supply Chain

Beginning in calendar year 2013, we implemented a conflict minerals program that includes due diligence measures which are consistent with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas. Since 2014, we have filed a Conflict Minerals Report annually with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

CEO Message

It goes without saying that the world has fundamentally changed in many ways. The impact of COVID-19 will reverberate for years to come, and many parts of the world are still struggling to contain the virus. Our hearts go out to them. We fervently hope that more access to vaccines can quickly turn the tide and we are committed to using our technology to help transportation and logistics companies expedite shipments safely.

Corporate Overview

CalAmp is a connected intelligence company that helps people and businesses work smarter. We partner with transportation and logistics, industrial equipment, government and automotive industries to deliver insights that enable businesses to make the right decisions. Our applications, platforms and smart devices allow them to track, monitor and recover their vital assets with real-time visibility that reduces costs, maximizes productivity and improves safety.

Governance & Leadership

CalAmp has earned Institutional Shareholder Services’ (ISS) highest Governance Quality Score™ of “1,”which recognizes excellence in managing governance risk. CalAmp’s commitment to social responsibility is reflected in our operations, our products and services and the actions of our people. We are dedicated to compliance with regulations worldwide that help protect the environment and human rights. Our Environmental Policy and Environmental Management System document may be viewed upon request.

Recent Highlights

We have incorporated social responsibility and environmental sustainability into our practices for many years. This report details our company’s priorities, processes and achievements related to these goals. CalAmp is committed to CSR as a fundamental element in the company’s ongoing success. We believe that corporate effectiveness and doing right by the world we inhabit are complementary factors. We also believe that our behavior and the decisions we make from a business standpoint and as individuals can greatly impact society for the better.

People and Community

CalAmp employees are integral to the success of the company and to achieving our CSR goals. With over 950 employees at locations around the world, and 150-200 new personnel hired each year, communication is essential, and we have instituted numerous avenues of two-way communication that helps ensure engagement and responsiveness.

Planet and Environment

Every action has an impact on the world around us, to some degree. CalAmp’s connected vehicle solutions not only reduce costs for fleet operators, but they also result in safer roads and less fuel consumption (which, by extension, results in fewer greenhouse gases being produced). Additionally, at every opportunity, we look for ways to reduce waste, both in our manufacturing partners’ processes and for customers. Not only does this result in greater cost-effectiveness but significantly less impact on the environment.

Metrics & Measurement

Every day, we strive to reach higher standards for corporate social responsibility. It’s essential, therefore, that we measure and compare where we have been and where we are today, to identify both our successes and challenges as we evolve and enhance our environmental and social programs.

Looking Ahead

Environmental and social responsibility is part of CalAmp’s DNA. The programs and protocols we follow today are intended to evolve and grow to better reflect our changing business objectives and our continuing role in society as developers of solutions that improve road and driver safety and efficiency as well as the changing needs of our employees, the communities we affect and the world as a whole.
