Business Growth Hub workshop: Transitioning Greater Manchester to a low carbon economy
11:00am - 12:00pm

As part of Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF), the Hub are running a workshop to highlight that Greater Manchester has set itself an ambitious carbon reduction target of 48% by 2020 which will require a concerted and coordinated effort.  Todd Holden and Richard Ousey of the Business Growth Hub will outline how it’s working to drive the transition to a low carbon economy.  The session will include case studies from local companies who have directly benefited from the Hub’s fully-funded business support, outlining how this has helped them to grow their business, reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to Greater Manchester’s transition to a low carbon economy.
