Empowering organizations to achieve their ESG goals

Our Connected Operations Cloud consolidates operations data on one unified platform so that customers can drive safer operations, increase business efficiency, and advance sustainability initiatives while improving the lives of their employees and the customers they serve.

Creating safer operations

We build technology that keeps people safe. We do this by following a data-driven approach to monitor real-time conditions and analyze asset status, vehicle use, and site visibility to improve safety across the entire operation.

Video-based safety solutions

Our safety solutions allow customers to view, analyze, and archive videos. We utilize proprietary AI embedded in our IoT dash cams to detect safety events in real time. By detecting risky behaviors like distracted driving, harsh braking, or tailgating, our system can alert drivers with in-cab audio alerts while video is stored in the cloud to provide personalized driver coaching. In addition, our Site Visibility application can identify unusual activity or workplace hazards.

There are a lot of factors that affect fuel use, but the main ones are driving habits and unnecessary idling–that is where Samsara is irreplaceable.”

Accelerating fleet electrification

EVs have the potential to dramatically reduce the environmental impact of transportation, one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Transitioning to EVs and operating a fleet successfully requires new intelligence about how vehicles are used on the job. Samsara provides a range of reports to help organizations determine which vehicles make sense for electrification, and report on fleet health.

Operating sustainably

Samsara Headquarters Render

Sustainable headquarters

Samsara’s upcoming new headquarters will be the first cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in San Francisco, and the first multi-story CLT building in California. CLT structural panels offer dimensional stability that’s superior to conventional framing, with a significantly smaller carbon footprint. The building has been awarded LEED Gold certification, and all improvements made by Samsara will meet LEED Gold standards or higher.

We’re installing an on-site Renewable Energy Generation System with a roof-mounted solar panel system which will generate around 77,000 kWh/yr of electricity for the building’s use.

Employee & community impact

Samsara depends on the unique experiences and perspectives of team members across our company to develop creative solutions to complex problems and build an innovative and successful company.

Life at Samsara

Samsara offers a wide range of programs to support our employees and ensure they have a safe and healthy work environment. We are committed to increasing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) across all teams and ensuring that people from all backgrounds feel a sense of belonging and ownership of their impact.
