SERA - Labour's Environment Campaign, with the support of the UK100 Cities Network, are hosting Labour's Metro-Mayoral candidate for Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham MP, to discuss Manchester's green economy.
Manchester is currently ranked inside the global top 25 cities for environmental sustainability, and won praise for its energy efficiency initiatives, saving local firms more the £100m. The low-carbon sector is a key driver for Greater Manchester's economy, worth an estimated £5.5bn per year and providing over 36,000 jobs.
The evening will be a chance to ask Andy about his plans for Manchester's green businesses, from clean energy to low-carbon transport, and to talk about the future role for Greater Manchester's green economy, leading the UK's low-carbon ambition.
