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.
