New ways to be a Fleet Hero

The 2018 Fleet Heroes Awards are offering even more opportunities for the UK’s most innovative private and public sector fleets to have their efforts to cut carbon and air pollution recognised, with three new categories among the entry options.

Fleet Heroes 2018

The awards will once again recognise those at the forefront of sustainable fleet management

Now in their 13th year, the awards include new categories for 2018 to shine a spotlight on those who are delivering a cleaner and more efficient future for transport:

  • City or Town Hero: concerning towns and cities
  • Fleet Hero Entrepreneur: for smaller organisations such as SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups
  • Freight Hero: recognising a business operating commercial vehicles.

This is alongside the existing awards for:

  • Fleet Hero
  • Ultra-low Emission Fleet Hero
  • Smarter Travel Hero
  • Ecodriving Hero
  • Ultra-low Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Hero
  • Unsung Fleet Hero

The 2018 awards are open for entries until 1 October, and it’s free for individuals to enter, or nominate colleagues or other organisations. Unsung Fleet Hero award recognises individuals who have shown their commitment to sustainable fleet practices in a number of ways, from driving significant organisational change, to inspiring others to adopt sustainable practices.

Winners will be named on 27 November 2018 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden, along with the free-to-attend Fleet Hero Conference, which takes place in the afternoon. The Energy Saving Trust’s flagship transport event brings together transport experts, prominent businesses and government representatives to discuss fleet sustainability and innovation, low emission vehicles and air quality. In 2017, keynote speakers included Automobile Association president, Edmund King, and Vicky Edmonds of the Department for Transport.
