Motor Transport Awards presented to low-carbon lorries

Motor Transport Awards presented to low-carbon lorries
Lorry firms who have taken steps to reduce their carbon emissions may qualify for a Motor Transport Award, according to industry website RoadTransport.com.

The award ceremony has recently added a second environmental category, which means operators of trucks, trailers and vans may qualify for either the Environment Award or the Low Carbon and Efficiency Award.

Environment Awards are presented to entire operations - depots, warehouses and trucks - displaying environmental awareness, while the Low Carbon and Efficency Award addresses reducing carbon emissions by running vehicles in a more efficient way.

Earlier this week, London unveiled its new low emission zone. Lorries and vans entering the zone must meet European standards for airborne pollutants or else risk a £200 fine.

According to the BBC, the restrictions will be enforced in a similar way to London's congestion charge, checking registered vehicle licence plates against the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency database.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18459387-ADNFCR
