GreenFleet Awards 2014

2014 GreenFleet Awards - winners announced

The green-minded fleet community gathered at the Heritage Motor Centre Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, on 30 October to find out who would scoop a GreenFleet Award, the industry’s most coveted awards for environmental fleet management and green motoring. The awards were sponsored by Jaguar, who this year released its most fuel-efficient model ever – the XE.
   
With the UK potentially receiving fines for failing to reach air pollution targets, the need to curb vehicle emissions is becoming ever more pressing. And year-on-year, organisations who operate fleets, as well as the motoring industry and fleet suppliers are putting great effort into reducing the impact of their transport operations and vehicle production. The GreenFleet Awards continues to recognise such dedication.
   
This year’s event was hosted by Quentin Willson, a renowned motoring journalist and longstanding spokesperson for drivers’ rights and a champion of greener fuels.
