Cars NOT Carbon

The LowCVP is launching the 'Cars NOT Carbon' marketing challenge, a competition to promote greener motoring marketing.

The competition is targeted to professional marketers and students from the relevant courses (including graphic design, visual communications, marketing etc.) and consists in creating a marketing/advertising campaign focusing on greener motoring, low carbon cars and fuels.

The Objectives of the Cars NOT Carbon Marketing Challenge are:

  • To engage marketers and educational institutions around the issues of low carbon fuels, vehicle technology and responsible motoring.
  • To create debate within the motor industry, media and general public.
  • To encourage the uptake of new cleaner vehicles and use of cleaner fuels by fleets and consumers.
  • To encourage the efficient and responsible use of vehicles as well as reducing travel.

The work will be assessed by an outstanding judging panel composed of high-profile stakeholders from the motoring industry and advertising agencies, chaired by John Elkington, Founder and Chief Entrepreneur, SustainAbility

The judges are:

  • Sue Adkins, Director, Business in the Community
