Michelin one of the sponsors at Low Carbon Champions Awards
The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) has announced the shortlist of nominees for the 2016 edition of the prestigious Low Carbon Champions Awards. The Champions Awards celebrate innovation and best practice in the UK’s accelerating drive to cut carbon emissions from the road transport sector.
This year, Michelin are sponsoring the ‘Low Carbon Car / Van Manufacturer of the Year’ and the shortlisted companies are: BMW, Iveco Ltd, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan, Tesla, Toyota GB PLC. There are eight other categories, including ‘Low Carbon Heavy Duty Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year’ and ‘Low Carbon Vehicle Operator of the Year’, amongst others
The Awards are in their sixth year and will, for the third time, following the sell-out and successes of 2014 and 2015, be presented at the LCV2016 Networking and Awards Dinner at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Milton Keynes. The event is held in collaboration with Cenex, and this year will take place on the evening of Wednesday 14 September 2016 – the first of two days of Cenex’s Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) 2016 event.
The Awards celebrate outstanding and innovative practice in the UK in accelerating the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels and reducing road transport emissions. The LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards are one of a select few sustainable development awards schemes to have received accreditation by the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA), which enables category winners to go forward to the European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE).
The ‘Grand Prix’ sponsor of the 2016 Low Carbon Champions Awards is, once again, Millbrook, host of the LCV2016 event.
