Greg Archer, Managing Director of the LowCVP who ran the awards, said: "These Awards define excellence and innovation, identifying the leaders in accelerating the shift to low carbon vehicles and fuels. The quality of the 50 plus entries was exceptional and demonstrates the vibrancy of UK businesses and organisations in striving to create new markets for lower carbon vehicles."
Companies at the forefront of cutting carbon emissions from road transport were honoured at the ceremony, which was held yesterday during LowCVP's seventh annual conference.
Ali received the Special Award for "the excellence and originality" of Liftshare's work in reducing traffic and energy use. "It is such a privilege to do something you love, and something which really makes a difference to society," he said. "We put real passion into helping people travel more sustainably, so to be recognised as Low Carbon Champions is the icing on the cake - especially when there are so many organisations doing other great things to help reduce our impact on the environment."
More than 375,000 individuals have signed up to Liftshare's 1,000+ car-sharing schemes around the UK. Members are currently sharing about 250million miles a year, and saving over 80,000 tonnes of CO2.
