LowCVP’s 2018 "Moving North: Reducing Transport Emission in the Northern Powerhouse" Conference was held in association with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, the Northern Automotive Alliance and Transport for Greater Manchester, and was sponsored by Uber and GEFCO. The conference was also supported by Manchester Metropolitan University.
The event, which was opened with a keynote address by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, focused 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 day long conference was followed by a networking drinks reception featuring an adress by Mike Blackburn of the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership.
