Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, said: “Each year the Green Summit captures the drive and passion people have in Greater Manchester to make this a greener place and I’m really looking forward to sharing and hearing progress and discussing ways forward once again this year.

“As we continue to push toward our ambitious goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2038, it’s vital that we ensure nobody is left behind – from residents living and working in the city-region to the businesses operating here, everyone has a role to play in making Greater Manchester greener. The next iteration of our five-year plan for the environment will help make that happen, focused on the tangible actions that partners can take to help us reach our goals.

“We have a real opportunity here to also capitalise on a green industrial revolution and lead the way in Greater Manchester by ensuring we have the right skills to fill new jobs in growing industries which will support our environment whilst boosting our economy.” 

The Green Summit is supported by a range of headline sponsors and official partners. This year, headline sponsors include:
