The Challenge
Summit Materials, a leading integrated construction materials solution provider, was facing challenges in achieving their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals due to decentralized solutions for telematics, safety, and site visibility. This decentralization led to gaps in their data and reporting, making it difficult to track progress against their goals. Their operations spanned across 22 U.S. states and British Columbia, Canada, further complicating the tracking process. Summit needed a technology partner that could consolidate their over the road fleet safety, emissions, and fuel consumption data into a single platform for better visibility and data reliability.

About The Customer
Summit Materials is a leading integrated construction materials solution provider with a vision to be the most socially-responsible in the market. Their operations span across 22 U.S. states and British Columbia, Canada. They have ambitious ESG goals, including achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. To achieve these goals, they needed a technology partner that could provide a reliable and consolidated platform for their over the road fleet safety, emissions, and fuel consumption data. They sought to improve their data accuracy, decrease preventable accidents, and enhance driver engagement and safety.
The Solution
Summit Materials partnered with Samsara and leveraged their Connected Operations Cloud to consolidate their technology providers, improve data accuracy, and decrease preventable accidents. They implemented Samsara AI Dash Cams, which led to a significant increase in driver engagement and safety. The reliable system allowed Summit to quickly retrieve incident footage, train drivers on safe driving practices, and reward drivers with the best Safety Scores across regions. This resulted in a 50% decrease in preventable incidents in one year. To achieve their goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, Summit used Samsara Vehicle Gateways to accurately record emissions figures and set meaningful targets, saving $1.8 million per year in fuel costs. They also integrated their fleet and onsite security technology with the Samsara platform, further consolidating their operational data.
