Submit your application for the Fleet Hero Awards
Published: 16 February, 2012
Local authorities now have the opportunity to submit their green fleet initiatives for the Energy Saving Trust Fleet Hero Awards. The awards celebrate public and private organisations that are successfully reducing fuel bills and lowering carbon footprints through fleet travel and transport policies.
They also highlight companies that supply fuel and cost-saving products or services to car and van fleets. Last year's event was dominated by the public sector. HMRC went home with two awards; named a Fleet Hero in the Best Large Public Sector Fleet and Business Mileage Management categories.
London Borough of Camden won the Innovation in Fleet Management award for introducing vehicles powered by biomethane that is generated from municipal waste. The Lake District National Park Authority won Leadership in the Public Sector, while St Edmundsbury Borough Council was named the Motorvate Member of the Year for its work encouraging employees to switch to sustainable transport.
The 11 categories are: Best Public Sector; Best Private Sector; Innovation in Fleet Management; Innovation in Car and Van manufacture; Innovation in Services and Systems; Industry Supplier; Leadership; Smarter Driving; Grey Fleet Management; Business Mileage Management; and Van Fleet Management. Applying requires only a 250 word entry outlining why your organisation should win. The deadline for initial applications is Tuesday 20th September 2011.
