Green Motion named as Rental Company of the Year

As ever, the end of the year brings award ceremonies and none come bigger for us than the GreenFleet Awards. The event was held on November 17th and we're thrilled to announce that we were awarded Rental Company of the Year for a record eighth successive year.

The GreenFleet Awards promote and celebrate good environmental practice in the car industry – something that we're very familiar with. The Rental Company of the Year award was presented to the company that was judged to “incorporate a robust environmental policy into its past and future operations”, as well as offering a wide range of lower CO2 models for rental.

Held at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, the annual awards are now in their 19th year. This year’s event was hosted by comedian and author Dominic Holland and was attended by Green Motion management as well as other frontrunners in the motoring industry including BMW, Nissan and Toyota. In its category, Green Motion beat off competition from companies such as Europcar and Electric Blue Ltd to walk away with this year’s headline award.

"Our environmental focus underpins everything we do as a company. To have our efforts recognised for an eighth consecutive year is very rewarding and we’re pleased to have this accolade,” comments Richard Lowden, the founder and CEO of Green Motion.

“It’s not just our environmental efforts that won us this award: our dedicated team across the UK work tirelessly to deliver some of the highest levels of customer service known within the car rental industry. All while maintaining our passion and commitment for all things green."

The GreenFleet Awards presents over 20 awards to organisations and individuals from the fleet and motor industries. As well as being nominated, Green Motion sponsored the event as well as three individual awards: City Car Manufacturer of the Year, Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year and IT Innovation Award.

This award highlights our efforts to offer leasing on the lowest CO2 emitting vehicles and incorporate a robust environmental policy into our present and future operations. Pictures from the ceremony can be found  here.
