The Low Carbon Champions Awards were an initiative of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) - now Zemo Partnership - a public-private partnership that exists to accelerate a sustainable shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels and create opportunities for UK businesses.
Around 200 organisations are engaged from diverse backgrounds including automotive and fuel supply chains, vehicle users, academics and civil society. The LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards were designed to identify and promote examples of outstanding and innovative practice in accelerating the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels and reducing road transport emissions. The Awards were established in 2010 to celebrate organisations that made a real difference in the area of low carbon road transport.
The Awards received accreditation for sustainable development award schemes by the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA). This meant the winners of the different categories will be eligible to go forward to represent the UK or Ireland in the European Business Awards for the Environment.
