Businesses are invited to Manchester Art Gallery on Thursday 3 March for a free briefing on how to tap into the rapidly expanding global market for Low Carbon and Environmental Goods and Services (LCEGS).
Greater Manchester itself has a thriving LCEGS sector, employing about 38,000 people. It is growing at a rate of five per cent per annum and generating annual sales of £5.5 billion, which in turn is creating new and exciting opportunities for local businesses.
Free advice and support
On 3 March, the Business Growth Hub’s Green Growth team will be available from 9.00am till 12.30pm to discuss the most effective ways of diversifying into this cutting-edge marketplace.
The event is likely to be of particular relevance to businesses operating in the following areas:
- Recycling and waste activities
- Water efficiency
- Energy efficient technologies
- Renewable energy
- Civil engineering
- Construction and architecture.
What to expect
Registration and refreshments will be available from 9.00am, with a formal welcome and introductions at 10.00am and allocated time for networking and follow-up conversations from 11.30am.
Businesses will have the opportunity to network over a cup of coffee and find out about the range of support available, including tender notifications and sales leads.
There will also be advice on accessing key markets and growth areas, and on adding value by understanding clients’ needs and barriers.
Keynote speakers will include:
- Todd Holden, low carbon director at the Business Growth Hub
- Mo Hanslod of Bri-Tek Technologies, a lighting company that is already benefiting from Green Growth support
- Brian Beaver of Moss Electrical, on tapping into competitive rates and additional support from technology suppliers.
During the course of the morning, delegates will hear from companies that are already operating and innovating in the LCEGS arena, or have experience of procuring low carbon products and services themselves.
