How To Enter

NEW AND EASIER NOMINATIONS PROCESS!

Eligibility

The awards are open to any UK business, organisation or individual that has made a significant contribution to accelerating the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels or reducing road transport greenhouse gas emissions through other approaches. You don’t have to be a LowCVP member to be nominated and there is no cost to enter.

International activities are eligible if these were also conducted in or have directly benefited the UK.

Awards will be granted for outstanding activities undertaken principally during 2016-17 (though some activity may have taken place earlier). In order for an award to be made the judges must be of the opinion it is of an appropriate standard and demonstrates an excellent example of activity in the sector.
