Elevate announces second sustainability summit for northern businesses

Elevate has announced the return of its annual Northern Sustainability Summit at Manchester Central on Monday, July 8.

Following its successful debut in 2023, the event from the Manchester business development consultancy returns and expects to attract up to 600 visitors from the north and beyond.

The trailblazing event is a project within Manchester Central’s incubator scheme, a programme open to businesses of all sizes and sectors that have a unique event concept, and are looking for support to bring it to life.   

The theme for this year’s summit is ‘making sustainability work for business’ and will include representatives from Electricity North West, Chester Zoo, the University of Salford and other leading organisations sharing sustainability insights throughout the day.

Delegates can expect sessions covering topics such as attracting eco-conscious consumers, accessing finance, reporting and offsetting, the role of infrastructure and the green industrial revolution.   

According to ENGIE Impact’s 2024 Net-Zero Report, 66% of organisations say they have some form of public carbon reduction commitment, but only 20% say they are meeting, or exceeding their goals. The summit aims to bring northern businesses together that are leading the charge on sustainability and connect them with those who are looking for guidance on how to set and meet sustainability goals, whilst also providing the tools they need to make a positive change, in turn, continuing the region’s mission to uphold sustainable business innovation across the UK.    

Director of Elevate, Ilona Alcock said: “It’s great to be back for a second year, we were blown away by the reception to our first Northern Sustainability Summit. Its success was further evidence that our region boasts a wealth of exciting businesses committed to sustainability.  

“Bringing these businesses together again, with plenty of new attendees in the room, will mean they can continue to share their wisdom and innovation and boost our region’s reputation as a powerhouse for sustainability. The more we can connect businesses and encourage them to share their work and learnings around sustainable practices, the better. Together we can collectively shape a greener future.”
