LERS Leadership in Emissions Reduction 2020 Award

Logistics UK is proud to launch the LERS Leadership in Emissions Reduction 2020 Award sponsored by ExxonMobil

 

The Award celebrates the efforts that scheme members are making to reduce emissions from freight. From working to reduce emissions through better fuel efficiency and use of green fuels, to developing cleaner innovations and switching to rail and water modes, logistics companies are showing that they can play their part in tackling the climate change challenge.

 

Natalie Chapman, Head of Urban Policy at Logistics UK:

“With an urgent need to improve air quality across the UK and to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, logistics businesses are striving to reduce emissions from their operations. This award is the perfect opportunity to recognise and celebrate the company which, through the use of alternative fuels and improved fuel efficiency, is making a significant contribution towards a greener future and paving the way for others to follow.”
