Enter the Motor Transport Awards 2020

Low Carbon Award

Cutting emissions of carbon dioxide is possibly the greatest challenge facing road transport, but successful companies show it can be done without adding cost or affecting customer service. The Low Carbon Award will be given to the operator who has made significant progress in reducing carbon emissions by improving the efficiency of its operation and/or by the use of alternative fuels and drive trains.

This award is open to third party or own account operators running 11 or more commercial vehicles of any size.

Judges will want to see:

  • How you measure your carbon footprint, preferably using some recognised methodology;
  • What opportunities you identified to reduce carbon emissions;
  • What initiatives you have taken;
  • The outcomes in terms of reduced emissions (such as total tonnes of CO2 or grammes of CO2 per tonne kilometre) and improved efficiency.
