Green Supplier Event to Inspire Greater Manchester

With green infrastructure on the rise across Greater Manchester, the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) is holding a special event for green suppliers across the region.

On Thursday 12th December UKGBC, in partnership with the IGNITION project, will host an all-day event which includes a series of inspirational talks, a presentation on the University of Salford’s innovative ‘Living Lab’ and networking with key contacts.

Suppliers will outline the business case behind real projects where they have created green infrastructure, followed by a panel discussion and time for questions. This will be a key opportunity for suppliers and other stakeholders to engage in the IGNITION project, to understand the future potential for green infrastructure in Greater Manchester and subsequently raise their profile within the industry.
