Recognising pioneers in environmental fleet management
Every year, the GreenFleet Awards recognises organisations which have successfully adopted low emission vehicles and innovative fuel saving solutions into their fleets, along with the manufacturers and innovators of low carbon technologies.
GreenFleet are pleased to bring you a new venue for the 2017 GreenFleet Awards. Still situated in the Midlands, this years’ event will move to the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, a state-of-the-art stadium and exhibition centre, and home to Coventry City FC and Wasps Rugby Club. On November 23, the black tie event will play host to the innovators of the low carbon vehicle sector.
Confirmed to present the 2017 GreenFleet Awards is one of the UK’s finest comedians, Jo Caulfield. Best-known for her legendary one-woman shows, Jo Caulfield is quite simply “a damn funny woman” (The Scotsman). Jo is a regular guest on the BBCs Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You, and has performed to audiences all over the world, as well as writing for Graham Norton, Anne Robinson and the late Joan Rivers.
Is your organisation striving to reduce the environmental impact and cost of its transport operations? Then let us know. The 2017 GreenFleet Awards is now open for entry to fleets of all sizes, in both the public and private sector.
GreenFleet Awards 2016 Winners announced
The winners of the 2016 GreenFleet Awards were announced at a glittering ceremony in Edgbaston Cricket Stadium. The black tie event saw Comedian Dominic Holland present over 20 awards to organisations and individuals from the fleet and motor industries, with those in attendance once again recognised for their contribution to greener road transport and environmental fleet management.
Royal Mail was a big winner on the night, picking up the Outstanding Achievement Award in recognition of the firm’s dedication to improving efficiency over its 500 year history. The Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year Award, sponsored by the ‘Home of the Arrive’n’Drive’, Rockingham, was arguably the most competitive category of them all. In the end, Toyota claimed the prize for its fuel-efficient fleet options, with hybrid derivatives across its range and even a hydrogen offering as well.
The success of the Leaf, which has recently been enhanced with a 30kWh option, helped Nissan to secure Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year, sponsored by Green Motion, while Fiat took home the City Car Manufacturer of the Year Award for the improved emissions of its popular 500 model.
