LowCVP’s 2018 "Moving North: Reducing Transport Emission in the Northern Powerhouse" Conference is held in association with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, the Northern Automotive Alliance and Transport for Greater Manchester, and is being sponsored by Uber and GEFCO. The conference is also supported by Manchester Metropolitan University.

The event, opening with a keynote address by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, will focus on the challenge of cutting carbon emissions and air pollution and seizing the business opportunities for automotive and fuel supply companies in the Northern Powerhouse that are being stimulated by the low carbon shift.

The conference will be followed by a networking drinks reception.
