Greater Manchester operates a `Green Growth’ Programme to engage business and organisations’ stakeholders in delivering resource efficiency and becoming fit for a low carbon economy.
Green Growth Pledges are a range of actions - from simple first steps to wholesale changes - that will reduce environmental impact and help organisations grow at the same time.

Participants can choose from a number of different categories and build their expertise in each one. A Green Growth Pledge is a message to customers and the wider business and stakeholder community that action is being taken to become clean and green, reducing costs, increasing resilience, and leading the way for others to follow.
The Low Carbon Network is a new and exciting opportunity to raise the profile of businesses in the low carbon and environmental goods and services sector and improve the visibility of local supply chains.

The Network aims to enable companies to be better connected to new business opportunities and better informed about what is happening in their sector – from new tender opportunities to changes in government policy.
It will also help build on our knowledge of the low carbon supply chain, thereby strengthening our support for local low carbon business.
