CitySprint beat off competition from Royal Mail and was crowned winner after demonstrating its commitment to CSR through a comprehensive environmental programme that minimises the impact its business has on the environment.
Commenting on the Awards the judges said: “The CitySprint environmental initiative was extremely impressive and on a scale that must have been a major challenge for a company of this size.
"The environmental impact is numerically quantified for each customer and the customer is then given a choice to either offset or select a more environmental delivery solution (such as electric vehicle or bike).
"The judges liked the idea of providing environmental reports and then letting the customer choose. Involving the customer and giving then real options is vitally important.”
CitySprint was the first UK courier company to introduce the Vectrix zero emission electric motorbike to its fleet.
It also has a fleet of low-emission Smart Cars and a number of LPG vehicles within its London van fleet.
CitySprint is also increasing the proportion of other electric, gas, hybrid and zero emission vehicles.
