GEFCO sponsors low cvp ‘Moving North’ conference

29 March 2018

On Thursday 12 April 2018 we will be sponsoring an exciting new event in association with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM).

‘Moving North’ will focus 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. The event, and the drinks reception which follows the conference, will also be an important networking opportunity, as it will enable delegates to:

  • CONNECT  bring together different sectors, including the automotive and energy industries, governmental/public sector organisations, ‘new mobility’ companies and other stakeholders.
  • COLLABORATE  help to facilitate fruitful new relationships and partnerships to accelerate solutions in the area of low emission road transport.
  • LEARN  will provide an opportunity to understand more about these issues in Manchester and the wider Northern Powerhouse area, and the resulting opportunities for businesses in the region.

Zsolt Vecsera, Managing Director, GEFCO UK, comments: “GEFCO has a long-term commitment to supporting its customers’ environmental approach across their supply chains, promoting multi-modal solutions and staying responsive to the changing market.”

“We are pleased to support LowCVP’s 'Moving North' conference, which highlights the critical challenges and opportunities that are being created across the automotive supply chain as low emission fuels and vehicles gain traction.”

Andy Eastlake, Managing Director, Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, comments: “This is the LowCVP’s first conference in Manchester and I am delighted that we have such an impressive line-up of high profile and knowledgeable speakers. Reducing CO2 emissions and improving air quality are two key items of focus for regions around the UK.” 

Carol Holden OBE, Chief Executive, Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA), adds “The automotive industry is changing at a faster rate than at any previous time in its history. This offers opportunities for existing automotive supply chain companies, but also for companies that currently don’t supply into automotive – from sectors such as energy and technology.”
