LAFARGE have triumphed at the ‘Oscars’ of the fleet industry after impressing judges with their proactive safety and sustainability schemes. The company was named Fleet of the Year in the 501–1,000 vehicle category.
Organized by trade publication ‘Fleet News’, the awards seek to recognize the best firms, vehicles, people and practices in fleet.
Rebecca Chivers, UK car fleet advisor for Lafarge (UK) Services, picked up the honour during a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
Rebecca, who is responsible for the fleet for both Lafarge Aggregates & Concrete UK and Lafarge Cement, said: ‘It was an amazing night and I felt truly privileged to accept the award on behalf of everyone at Lafarge.
‘These awards are regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the fleet world, so even being nominated is an achievement – but to go on and win is absolutely fantastic and a real testament to all our hard work.
‘At Lafarge our aim is ‘zero harm’, so we do everything we can to ensure our employees work safely, and that includes when they are on the road in a company vehicle.
‘Limiting our impact on the environment is also a key priority and we are continuously striving to operate as sustainably as possible.’
