The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) has announced the shortlist for its 2015 Low Carbon Champions Awards, which aim to recognise the UK’s continued progressive thinking in the area of low carbon transport.

Now in their fifth year, the awards celebrate best practice in the UK in accelerating the shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels and reducing road transport emissions.

The organisers said the 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), enabling category winners to go forward to the European Business awards for the Environment (EBAE).

Returning by popular demand, the master of ceremonies will be actor and green vehicle enthusiast Robert Llewellyn (pictured), best known for his role as ‘Kryten’ in BBC's Red Dwarf and for presenting Channel 4's Scrapheap Challenge.

The awards will be presented at the networking and awards dinner at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Milton Keynes in collaboration with Cenex on the evening of Wednesday 9 September 2015 – the first of two days of the Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) 2015 event.
