Richard Lowden, founder and CEO of Green Motion, received the Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s Green Fleet Awards, which were held in Coventry, United Kingdom.

The Green Fleet Awards recognize individuals and businesses that strive to make a difference in lowering their carbon impact within the fleet sector.

The Outstanding Achievement Award honored Lowden’s dedication to bringing about change in the global rental industry — with Green Motion launching as a car rental company on a green/environmental platform. From its launch in 2007, Green Motion is now present in over 30 countries.

"Outstanding Achievement is totally deserved,” said Jason Devoto, managing director of the PSI Group.  “[Lowden’s] pioneering work and fight against the odds needed to be recognized."

"It is an incredible honor to have received Green Fleets’ Outstanding Achievement award, but it is important to note that this was not an achievement undertaken purely by myself but by the entire team here at Green Motion International," said Lowden. "Receiving this award is a tremendous milestone, but our journey continues with us being truly focused on further expansion and development for 2018 with us already planning further franchises locations in the U.S., Europe, and the APAC region.”
