Next Green Car has won the Green Entrepreneur award in the Bristol Post Green Capital Awards 2015. The award recognised the innovation and rapid growth in the company in providing smart digital tools and information to help consumers find a more environmentally-friendly car.

The Green Entrepreneur award makes up one of 11 prizes handed out at a ceremony held yesterday evening (Thursday 12th November) at the Bristol Marriott. Set up by the Bristol Post newspaper, the Green Capital Awards were founded this year to mark the city's time as European Green Capital, a title it holds throughout 2015.
Other notable winners included Cameron Balloons in the Innovation Category for a solar-powered hot air balloon, FoodCycle for ground-breaking work in reducing food waste in the Green Community category and the Create Centre in the Leisure and Tourism category.
Melanie Shufflebotham, Director at Next Green Car Ltd, attended the gala dinner to pick up the award. *We are delighted to win the Green Entrepreneur's award in Bristol's European Green Capital Year. Proud to be part of such an energised and creative city, we look forward to producing new inventive digital products to drive the take-up of ultra low emission vehicles across the UK."
