NCT wins more awards
Nottingham City Transport is celebrating after winning the Environmental Improvement Award at The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Awards for Excellence last night (17th March 2021).
The virtual awards celebrated and honoured the very best individuals and organisations who have played a part in delivering logistics and transport during the last 12 months.
Following a record-breaking £42m investment in low-emission vehicles since 2017, the Environmental Improvement Award recognises NCT’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact, where fleet emissions have been reduced by 90% through operation of a full Euro VI compliant fleet.
The £42m investment has seen 120 brand new, environmentally-friendly biogas double deck buses introduced, the installation and expansion of a biogas fuelling station, an exhaust treatment system installed on 180 young diesels and 10 brand new Euro VI midi-buses enter service between 2017 and 2019.
The delivery of NCT’s environmental improvement has been achieved through partnership with several organisations, including Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council who successfully secured £3m of funding from the DEFRA Clean Bus Technology Fund and supported NCT’s OLEV (Office for Low Emission Vehicles) bids.
Roadgas and Air Liquide have also been important partners, along with bus manufacturers Scania and Alexander Dennis (ADL) who helped develop the bio-gas double deck bus with NCT.
