Dearman, the local zero-emission tech experts, have presented an award to Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake for "support and services to clean air and sustainability".
Tom Brake MP has supported Dearman’s work to improve air quality since the company opened its Stafford Road offices in 2015, creating 70 local jobs.
Dearman’s CEO Scott Mac Meekin, who presented the award, said:
"Tom has been a fantastic and supportive local Member of Parliament since we opened our offices in Wallington. He has taken a close interest in our work and he has repeatedly raised in Parliament the need to encourage the uptake of zero-emission technologies.
"On behalf of the company, I was delighted to present him with a certificate of gratitude, for all the help he’s given us and for showing that clean air and sustainability are important issues for him."
Carshalton & Wallington Tom Brake MP added:
"I was very honoured to receive an award from Dearman, who are doing pioneering work to tackle air pollution. I’ve always considered it important to support local businesses and having visited Dearman a number of times, I have seen how the company has developed.
"When it comes to cleaner urban deliveries, which is Dearman’s focus, ministers should take the lead and ensure that fleet operators adopt zero-emission solutions."
Tom has raised Dearman’s policy concerns about diesel technologies in Parliament and encouraged the uptake of zero-emission alternatives. He has also visited Dearman to see the company’s groundbreaking engineering first hand.
Dearman’s pioneering liquid nitrogen technology eliminates all particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emissions, as well as significantly cutting carbon dioxide emissions.
The award-winning technology has already been successfully deployed by the likes of Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer, and Unilever.
