GREEN: FTA launch LCRS Awards 2014
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) have launched the Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme (LCRS) Awards for 2014.
Developed to celebrate green leaders in the freight industry, the awards recognise the efforts of individual LCRS members to reduce their carbon emissions from freight activity.
The categories are: Best Fuel-Efficient Operation; Best Use of Alternative Low Carbon Fuels and Technologies; Most Innovative Fleet Management; Breakthrough in Modal Shift; and Leadership in Logistics Carbon Reduction.
LCRS Awards will be presented at FTA’s annual Logistics Carbon Reduction Conference, to be held in May 2014.
Rachael Dillon, Climate Change Policy Manager at the FTA, said: “We are delighted to be launching new Awards for 2014, providing an excellent opportunity for fleet operators to earn recognition for efforts that they are undertaking to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
“Additionally, the Awards signal to customers, stakeholders, policymakers and the public that the freight industry is making significant efforts to contribute to solving the climate change challenge.”
Any company which is an LCRS member with a green freight initiative worthy of an award is invited to enter, with entry in multiple categories permitted.
