Energy Saving Programme

GC Business Growth Hub has launched five fully-funded series of workshops to improve energy efficiency in SME supply chains, in partnership with a select group of prestigious companies in Greater Manchester.

Why get involved?

Taking action to improve energy efficiency and cut carbon emissions is becoming increasingly important for businesses of all sizes. Not only is it beneficial to a company’s bottom line, it also helps to maintain competitiveness in supply chains and ensures resilience against rising energy prices.

As supply chain partners of numerous well-established companies in Greater Manchester, we will bring together our core aim of sustainable local economic growth with your business need for a robust, responsive and collaborative supply chain that reflects your ethics and aspirations.

As a delegate, you will gain an understanding of the values of both your customer, and of other public sector organisations, and how to demonstrate these within your own business operations when responding to tenders.

What we do

With support from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the European Regional Development Fund, the Hub has helped thousands of businesses to grow, develop and reach their full potential.

Our award-winning environmental business services are designed to help companies reduce their operating costs, increase their competitiveness and resilience, and drive growth by saving energy and installing renewable energy technologies.
