There are prizes in 10 categories available, from best business fleets, to local authorities doing the most to tackle air quality, to those taking the very necessary step of bringing more electric vehicles to the front line of enterprise and public service.

This year’s prize-giving includes an open award for innovation, in which fleet managers, vehicle manufacturers and fleet service suppliers alike can make their cases. This award will take account of imagination, employee engagement and a willingness to overcome barriers, and will also factor in employee and client feedback.

The EST added that applications are particularly welcomed from the small and medium-sized organisations striving to play their part in Britain’s sustainable transport future and cleaning up the air in our towns and cities.

Last year’s winners included Carlsberg, for its achievements on eco-driving and West Yorkshire Police, for efforts to cut costs and carbon across its fleet.

To enter, submit up to 250 words explaining why your organisation or colleague should be recognised as a Fleet Hero.

The application form and judging criteria are available on the Fleet Hero Awards website.

Awards presentation will take place on 24 November 2016 at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden.
