Voi shortlisted for CIHT’s Climate Change Award

Voi has been shortlisted for a climate change award for the role it plays in supporting inclusive net-zero transport.

The CIHT hosts awards each year covering 11 categories, ranging from collaboration, engineering, transport planning and employer of the year. The Ringway Climate Change Award recognises projects, schemes, products or strategies that demonstrate a contribution to mitigating climate change.

The applicants are evaluated based on various criteria, including the use of innovation, stakeholder engagement and demonstrable benefits to society. Voi was shortlisted for its e-scooters trials spanning across the UK, which are helping accelerate the transition to net-zero transport and support the green recovery.

Nathan Ashley, senior public policy manager for Voi in the UK, said: “Our vision is to create better cities for living and we partner with cities to champion transition towards shared, multimodal and zero-emission mobility. We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Climate Change Award, which is a testament to our commitment and efforts towards innovation and sustainable practices.”

Martin Tugwell, CIHT president, added: “The last year has been a testing time and I commend our sector for continuing to deliver projects of such a high calibre. The CIHT awards recognise the remarkable achievements of those working in highways and transportation and are one of the most respected events in our sector.”
