Greater Than receives 2019 CCBJ Business Achievement Award - Environmental Business Journal Recognizes Firms for Growth and Innovation
San Diego, Calif. (February 2020) — Each year Climate Change Business Journal recognizes outstanding business performance in the climate change industry with the CCBJ Business Achievement Awards. Climate Change Business Journal has announced its 9th annual business achievement awards for achievements in 2019 and Greater Than is pleased to announce that it was chosen to receive the CCBJ award in the category Information Technology for its smart driving challenge initiative.
Greater Than receives the award for the selection of its artificial intelligence (AI) platform to support an international “smart driving” initiative. In 2019, Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) launched the FIA Smart Driving Challenge, the world’s first global competition in smart driving. The goal of the partnership between Greater Than and FIA, which is the mother organization for motor clubs with 88 million members, is to raise awareness about safe and environmentally responsible driving for everyday drivers. Through “gamification,” drivers are encouraged to contribute to lower CO2 emissions and road safety. With 16 years of experience with connected cars and a database of 650 million unique driving situations, coupled with AI and machine learning, Greater Than can calculate each trip’s risk in real time and thereby influence drivers, through economic incentives and gamification, to drive in a safer and environmentally friendly manner.
In October-December 2019, CCBJ solicited industry, government, non-profits and the broader climate change community via e-mail, social media, its website, industry events and word-of-mouth for nominations for the 2019 CCBJ Business Achievement Awards. Nominations were accepted in 200-word essays in either specific or unspecified categories. Categories may have been adjusted depending on the volume of nominations or the number of worthy recipients. Final awards were determined by a committee of CCBJ staff and CCBJ editorial advisory board members
The 2019 CCBJ awards will be presented on Thursday evening, March 19th during the 18th annual Environmental Industry Summit. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual executive retreat hosted by EBI Inc.
