The recent Energy Savings Trust Fleet Hero Awards saw O’Donovan Waste Disposal named winner of the Commercial Vehicle Management Award for the third consecutive year.
The awards celebrate the work of organisations that have implemented policies and innovations to reduce their fleet’s carbon footprint and fuel costs.
O’Donovan’s award was in recognition of its approach to trialling and testing initiatives as part of its Greener Vision Strategy which, in a 12-month period from 2014-15, resulted in a 21.5% reduction of CO2 per kilometre travelled and an increase of 27.5% in kilometres per litre of fuel.
Jacqueline O’Donovan, managing director, said: “As a waste company, we recognise that we are at the ‘dirty end’ of logistics, which is why we work harder to achieve our successes and continue to improve our safe, green and efficient credentials and reduce our environmental impact.
“To be pitted in this category against two huge brands, Carlsberg and TNT, collecting the award for the third year running is an amazing recognition of all of the hard work by the O’Donovan team.”
