UK fleets are to be recognised for being environmentally friendly at the Energy Saving Trust Fleet Hero Awards.

Organisations that are successfully reducing their fuel bills and carbon footprints will be celebrated. The awards are open to all organisations, public and private, of all sizes.

Head of transport advice for the Energy Saving Trust, Nigel Underdown, said: “Road transport accounts for over a fifth of the UK’s total greenhouse gas emissions, and businesses are in an ideal position to make a positive impact.”

Previous award winners have included construction contractors, NJS trusts, automotive manufacturers, government departments and agencies, courier companies and local councils.

The awards are split into 11 categories: 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; Van Fleet Management.

Initial applications require a 250 word entry outlining why your organisation should win. The deadline is Tuesday September 20. Applicants who pass the first round will be notified by Tuesday September 27 and asked to submit another, more detailed, application by Friday October 14.

To receive an application form, email your name, job title and organisation to fleetheroes@est.org.uk.
