THE GREENFLEET AWARDS 2021 WINNERS ANNOUNCED
The winners of the 2021 GREENFLEET Awards have been announced, showcasing environmental excellence within the fleet and transport sector.
The glittering ceremony took place on 1 December at British Motor Museum in Warwick, with the awards presented by comedian, impressionist, writer and actress Ronni Ancona.
The awards, sponsored by the Algorithm People, showcase innovation by both the fleets themselves, as well as those that supply them. And there is individual recognition too, with fleet manager awards, together with the EV and AFV Champions.
New for this year was the GREENFLEET Vehicle of the Year award, recognising the car, van or truck that has made the biggest impact on the UK fleet sector in 2021. The coveted title went to the Peugeot e-208; with over 4,000 vehicles sold from the start of 2020 to May 2021, the e-208 is Peugeot’s most popular electric car across its product portfolio. Powered by a 100kW motor, the e-208 uses a 50kWh battery which provides a range of up to 217 miles (WLTP) from a full charge.
Taking place on December 1st at the British Motor Museum in Warwick, the 2021 GREENFLEET Awards will once again return as a LIVE event, where we can get together - safely- to recognise the pioneering vehicle fleets in the private and public sectors which have risen to the environmental challenge during unprecedented times.
A key date in the industry calendar, the Black tie event celebrates the achievements of the fleet sector.
As usual, we will showcase innovation by both the fleets themselves, as well as those that supply them. And there is individual recognition too, with Fleet Manager awards, together with the coveted EV and AFV Champions.
And we have decided that now is the time to freshen things up too… NEW for 2021 are the new-look fleet categories, with more emphasis placed on those that are made up of cars, and those that feature commercials more heavily.
And to compliment the Industry Innovation and Outstanding Achievement awards, we are introducing the brand-new GREENFLEET Vehicle of the Year award. As more and more manufacturers introduce cleaner, innovative models to their offering, this category will recognise the car, van or truck that has made the biggest impact on the UK fleet sector in 2021.
As usual, entry is FREE OF CHARGE, with the closing date set as Friday 01 October.
The 2020 GREENFLEET Awards Winners
The winners of the 2020 GREENFLEET Awards have been announced. The online ceremony, hosted by one of the biggest names in the world of electric vehicles, Roger Atkins, and assisted by one of the leading stars in UK comedy, impressionist Luke Kempner, celebrated the fleet operators, companies and individuals that have successfully slashed transport emissions, helping with the UK's air quality and net zero agenda..
Despite the coronavirus pandemic disrupting our lives in both 2020, and for the first half of 2021 too, the environmental agenda has not lost pace, demonstrated by the hard work of the Winning and Commended organisations at this year's awards.
Winning the 2020 GREENFLEET Award for Outstanding Achievement was Nissan GB for its work helping key frontline NHS staff get to and from work, in a safe and efficient manner, during the first coronavirus lockdown. Nissan provided a free car use service that included complimentary insurance and roadside assistance. And whilst vehicle production closed down, they used spare factory space and a team of volunteers to produce more than half a million protective aprons for NHS staff.
We do hope you will join us for what is set to be an emotional return to proceedings for many of us. If you have any questions about entry, sponsorship opportunities, table bookings or even our COVID-safety plans, please don’t hesitate in getting in touch. We look forward to seeing the entries come in and meeting you later in the year.
*Private and Public sector fleets, as well as EV Champions, will be announced shortly.
