Nicki Shields said: “I am absolutely delighted to be the guest speaker at the LowCVP Champions Awards. I attended last year and was really impressed by the event and everyone I met. It’s a brilliant opportunity to recognise those people and businesses who are driving the industry forward. As an environmentalist but also car fanatic, being part of the LowCVP is very important to me. It’s great to see so much progress all under one roof and really complements the ambitions of Formula E, the all-electric racing championship, which I have been part of since the beginning.”
The Low Carbon Champions Awards celebrate outstanding and innovative practice in the UK in accelerating the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels and reducing road transport emissions. The LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards are one of a select few sustainable development awards schemes to have received accreditation by the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA), which enables category winners to go forward to the European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE).
The networking dinner at which the Awards are presented takes place on the evening of Wednesday 14 September 2016 – the first of two days of Cenex’s Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) 2016 event.
