23.10.2012 LowCVP call for 2012 Awards nominations
The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership has announced the call for nominations for the third Low Carbon Champions Awards which will be presented at a gala event to take place on 29 January 2013 at One Birdcage Walk, Westminster.
The Awards presentation will take place following a celebration event to mark the LowCVP’s 10th anniversary. The Anniversary Reception, to be attended by transport minister Norman Baker MP, will celebrate the achievements of LowCVP’s and provide an opportunity to announce the Partnership’s future strategy.
The LowCVP Champions Awards celebrate examples of outstanding and innovative practice in accelerating the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels and reducing road transport emissions. There should be plenty of competition for the Awards this time as – over the last year and more – the automotive industry has been a bright sector in an otherwise dull economic picture while also delivering progress in environmental terms.
There are seven categories of Awards reflecting the diversity of those engaged in encouraging the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels. The seven awards are for:
* Low Carbon Car / Van Manufacturer of the Year
* Low Carbon Heavy Duty Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year
* Low Carbon Vehicle Operator of the Year
* Low Carbon Fuel Initiative of the Year
* 2012 Award for Low Carbon Innovation by an SME
* Low Carbon Road Transport Initiative of the Year
* 2012 Outstanding Low Carbon Publication or Report
Two special awards will also be made:
* Outstanding Individual in Promoting Lower Carbon Transport
* Outstanding Achievement in Low Carbon Transport over the last 10 years.
The LowCVP Awards winners will be assessed by a panel of expert judges drawn from the LowCVP's wide range of stakeholder organisations including: BMW, BVRLA, Cenex, Department for Transport, Energy Saving Trust, Freight Transport Association, Next Green Car, Greenpeace, Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), Ricardo UK Ltd, Road Haulage Association, Shell, SMMT, Transport for London and others.
Andy Eastlake, the LowCVP’s Managing Director, said: "The LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards demonstrate excellence in moving forward the low carbon agenda in transport. With so much innovation and dynamism around the low carbon transport sector this year – covering vehicles, fuels, policy and operations – I look forward to some very high quality entries."
Full details and downloadable entry forms for the LowCVP Awards 2012 are available at: lowcvp.org.uk/lowcarbonchampions. The deadline for nominations is Friday 23 November.
