LeasePlan UK rewarded for GreenPlan programme at LowCVP awards

LeasePlan UK has just received its third award in less than 12 months for its GreenPlan programme, after being named as a winner of the 2010 Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) awards.

LeasePlan UK collected the Low Carbon Road Transport Programme Award during the LowCVP awards dinner, held at Twickenham Stadium.

Since its inception in 2005, more than 80% of LeasePlan’s major fleet customers have adopted GreenPlan policies and implemented sustainable measures to reduce CO2 emissions across their fleet.

Over the past two years, this programme has accounted for over 22,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions reduction and cut the average vehicle cost by 6.2%.

Greg Archer, managing director of the LowCVP, said: “These awards define excellence and innovation, identifying the leaders in accelerating the shift to low carbon vehicles and fuels. The quality of the entries was exceptional and demonstrates the vibrancy of UK businesses and organisations in striving to create new markets for lower carbon vehicles.”

Judges on the LowCVP awards panel added: “We were particularly impressed by the high rate of client take up achieved by LeasePlan and its tangible results from doing simple things well.”

This award follows a string of recent achievements for LeasePlan UK, including wins at the Best Workplaces Awards, Green Fleet Awards and Fleet News Awards.
