eDriving, driver risk management and driver training provider, has been named a private sector member of the Global Road Safety Partnership.
Founded in 1999, and hosted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, the Geneva-based GRSP works through a partnership model to create and implement 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.
Celia Stokes, CEO of eDriving, said: “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.
“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: “Working with GRSP, we’ll be able to share our expertise and experience helping organisations 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.”
