eDrivingSM, one of the largest global providers of driver risk management and driver training solutions, has been named a “Private Sector Member” of the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), a prestigious international road safety organization that partners with corporations, non-profits, and government agencies to improve driver safety and reduce road traffic fatalities worldwide.
Founded in 1999, and hosted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, the Geneva, Switzerland, based GRSP works through a partnership model to create and implement multi-sector, front-line and sustainable road safety interventions in more than 40 countries. Members of GRSP are part of a globally recognised network of like-minded organisations committed to improving road safety, both within their organisations and beyond the business gates.
Other Private Sector GRSP members include AXA, Nestlé, Toyota, Shell, Michelin, Renault, and Zurich. Other Government, Civil Society and Foundation members include Save the Children, the World Health Organization, Mexican Red Cross, and many more. The complete list of members can be found here.
“By creating a unique and proven partnership model bringing together leaders in government, business, non-profits and local stakeholders, the GRSP is producing real and sustainable results. This is the natural progression of eDriving’s own mission and we’re delighted to now be part of this worldwide effort,” said Celia Stokes, CEO of eDriving.
Ed Dubens, Executive Vice President of eDriving added: “Working with GRSP, we’ll be able to share our expertise and experience helping organizations across the world develop and evolve driver safety cultures. We’re particularly excited about also being able to deliver our new safety training solutions via smart phone technology into markets where traditional eLearning infrastructure does not exist. That’s potentially life-saving and game-changing.”
Andrew Bradley, Head, Group Risk Services at Nestlé and Chair of the GRSP Steering Committee said: “eDriving is an outstanding and important addition to our steering committee. The company’s passion for highway safety and amazing technologies promise real and lasting improvements in safe driving. We’ve found that creating real change in highway safety means bringing together multiple voices, experiences and expertise, as well as the resources of the private, public and non-profit sectors behind a single goal — making our transportation systems safer.”
