Tesco wins major European road safety award

03 February 2011

The UK-based online grocery for home delivery TESCO DOTCOM won a European Excellence in Road Safety Award. The awards were presented in Brussels by EU Transport Commissioner Siim Kallas.

More than 500 signatories of the Road Safety Charter competed in seven categories on the basis of their commitments to reduce the number of road fatalities in their communities. TESCO DOTCOM received the award in the large business category for a prevention and training programme addressed to its drivers.

Commissioner Kallas praised the winners, saying "these commitments reflect how diverse the organisations which have signed up to the Road Safety Charter are in terms of the services they provide but also in how they propose to fight against road fatalities. It is very inspiring".

The other winners are: BUSTURAS, a transport service provider in Lithuania; the IRISH MEDICAL ORGANISATION; MATERSKASKOLA – MS DENSOVA, a kindergarten in Slovakia; ANBO, an independent organisation for seniors in the Netherlands; AYUNTAMIENTO DE VERÍN & CÂMERA MUNICIPAL DE CHAVES, two municipalities on the border between Spain and Portugal.

During the ceremony 16 additional signatories joined the European Road Safety Charter, mostly major European businesses, such as Axa Group, TNT Post and Iberdrola. Their commitments under the Charter will have a significant impact on road safety.
