eDriving has been named a "Private Sector Member" of the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), an international road safety organization that partners with corporations, non-profits, and government agencies to improve driver safety and reduce road traffic fatalities.
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 recognized network of like-minded organizations committed to improving road safety, both within their organizations and beyond the business gates.
Other Private Sector GRSP members include AXA, Nestlé, Toyota, Shell, Michelin, Renault, and Zurich.

"We’re truly honored to be selected as a member of the GRSP and to become part of an incredible array of passionate individuals and organizations all committed to a single mission — to reduce needless auto death and injuries on the world’s roads," said Celia Stokes, CEO of eDriving. "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."
Ed Dubens, executive vice president of eDriving added: "We’re thrilled to be a part of the GRSP, and are extremely interested in the partnership opportunities it presents globally to help organizations and their employees driving for work purposes get home to their loved ones and communities at the end of each day. 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 of the Group Risk Services at Nestlé and chair of the group's 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. eDriving is at the epicenter of constructive, now- and next-gen fleet and mainstream consumer technologies and will surely help advance and accelerate our overall effort."
