Awards Entry

The Fleet Heroes Awards showcase organisations that are proactively delivering a cleaner, safer, more efficient future for road transport. Back for their 13th year, the Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of fleets, businesses, local authorities and others who are taking action to reduce carbon emissions, tackle air pollution and improve business operations and public services.

The Awards also celebrate organisations that are driving the uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles, forward thinking approaches taken in our towns and cities, and the unsung Fleet Heroes among us who innovate and inspire action in others. Winning a Fleet Hero Award is a great boost for organisations, recognising hard work, determination and a commitment to sustainability. 

The awards & conference will be held on Tuesday 27th November at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden, WC2B 5DA.

The deadline for applications is Monday 1st October 2018.
