Alternative Fuel Award

In 2018, MVW Lechtenberg & Partner has presented the Alternative Fuel Award for the first time. The Award is established by MVW Lechtenberg & Partner to encourage the acceptance of the ecological responsibility on both social and individual levels, and to identify role models in the field of alternative fuels, a field which, aside from its contribution to the economic development, has the greatest contribution to the protection of our environment.

The award is to be presented to companies, cities, institutions and individuals promoting the idea of sustainable alternative fuel’s production and use.
