Sustainable suppliers: make sure your business gets the green light

In collaboration with Great Places, the Hub is launching a fully-funded support package for both existing and potential suppliers. 

Why should I take part?

This series of workshops will help Great Place’s existing, and potential SME suppliers, to identify and implement opportunities to maximise efficiency and improve their environmental credentials.

These are increasingly becoming an important requirement across the housing sector, with social value impact carrying a significant weighting for tender submissions - often a critical factor in winning or losing tender opportunities.

By demonstrating good environmental credentials and social value practice, SMEs can differentiate their bids and increase their chance of tender success.

*Certain eligibility criteria apply 

Delegates who complete the three workshop series will receive a certificate which can be used in future tender applications.

This workshop series has been designed to enable SME suppliers to demonstrate the actions they have taken to reduce their environmental impact and align themselves with Great Places’ values. Each workshop is designed to address key barriers SMEs face, by providing guidance and support on actions, many of which are of little or no cost.

Through attending these workshops you will benefit from:

  • Being able to identify cost-saving opportunities and make smart investment decisions
  • Reduced risk of legislative non-compliance
  • Reduced resource costs through low or no cost measures
  • Being able to evidence environmental credentials within tender submissions to create additional business opportunities

Non-SME (small and medium-sized enterprises) suppliers are welcome to attend these workshops, however, priority will be given to those suppliers who are classified as an SME and are located within Greater Manchester.
