The Energy Saving Trust (EST) has announced the finalists for this year’s Fleet Heroes Awards.

The awards celebrate organisations who are delivering a cleaner and more efficient future for transport across the UK.

Tim Anderson, head of transport at the Energy Saving Trust said: “Now in its fourteenth year, Fleet Heroes celebrates the best sustainable practices across the transport industry and the achievements of businesses, organisations and local authorities implementing them in the journey towards zero emissions. An exceptional shortlist of finalists from the length and breadth of the UK have been selected by our panel of independent judges."

Poppy Welch, head of the joint government and industry campaign Go Ultra Low, said: “Fleets have always been drivers of change when it comes to the implementation of new technologies, and the shift towards zero emission transport is just one such example. The companies shortlisted for a Fleet Hero Award are demonstrating that introducing electric vehicles across their fleets can save businesses significant amounts of money, as well as helping build their organisation’s green credentials. We wish all of the finalists the best of luck on the night.”
