Driver training company IAM Drive & Survive has won the prestigious ‘Driver Training Company of the Year’ for a second time, presented at last night’s GreenFleet Awards 2011.
The event, held at Twickenham Stadium, celebrates those manufacturers and fleet managers who have whole-heartedly taken on the challenge to combat climate change with pioneering ways to reduce the carbon output of their fleet.
The ‘Driver Training Company of the Year’ award is presented to the driver training organisation that has been successful in promoting and diversifying its green driving instruction courses, and has incorporated fuel economy training modules into other driver awareness programmes it offers.
IAM Drive & Survive CEO Simon Best said: “We are really excited to have received this award for a second time – a real sign of our ongoing dedication to road safety, and our eco-friendly credentials.
“As well as our Ecolution product, which has been proven to improve fuel consumption by a minimum of 15 per cent, we now offer cycle training commercially – by far the greenest way to get around.
“Driving with our easy methods in mind can help reduce driver stress levels, improve driver attitude, increase the safety of both drivers and passengers, and ultimately increase fleet operational efficiency.”
Eco-driver training includes techniques such as maintaining momentum, backing-off from queues of traffic earlier, and looking ahead to plan your strategy.
