The prestigious International Green Apple Environment Awards were held recently which serves to highlight the benefits and profits that can be achieved by adopting environmental best practice in a host of industries.
The awards are produced by an independent group call The Green Organisation which is dedicated to promoting great environmental behaviours. New cars were recognised for the first time at this years ceremony, with the Yeti E 2.0 TDI CR taking the top accolade in its ‘Smaller SUV and 4×4’ category.
The award was judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers, who commented that “It does everything you need a car to do and you get a lot of car for the money. This is actually that rare beast – an SUV with luggage space,”
ŠKODA UK Product Marketing Manager Chris Horrell was delighted with the prize: “The Yeti has been a game-changing car for ŠKODA, and to win an award based around its environmental credentials is fantastic. That we’re the first winner of this honour makes it doubly special.”
