Government Helps to Promote Low Carbon Business

by Gareth Stace, Head of Climate & Environment Policy 23. September 2010 11:15

Are you interested in promoting your company at a Department for Business (BIS) low carbon exhibition?


BIS is holding an exhibition at its headquarters in London to promote low carbon products from UK manufacturing companies. The exhibition runs from 11th - 22nd October. Unfortunately, there is a short deadline of informing BIS that you are interested in exhibiting, which is Monday.


If you are interested, please contact Tony Mills at BIS on 020 7215 4729


Further details of this opportunity from BIS are below:


An exhibition of cutting edge products has been unveiled by Business Minister Mark Prisk at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) to encourage a new generation of innovators.


The Government is committed to promoting manufacturing as it is critical to economic growth with responsibility for 53 per cent of UK exports and 2.8 million jobs.


With new business opportunities, such as low carbon products, emerging all the time BIS wants to work with the manufacturing industry to encourage new talent and attract new businesses to the sector.


The exhibition is the first in a planned rolling programme of themed displays demonstrating excellence in British design, engineering and manufacturing.


Business Minister Mark Prisk said:

“Britain is a world leader in manufacturing but if we are to inspire future generations we must do all we can to promote UK excellence.


"As a signal of our intent we have invited shining examples of British design, engineering and manufacture to showcase their products at the department.


To help illustrate the theme the exhibits will be displayed so that visitors from the business community can follow the supply chain through the displays in the main reception and lift lobby areas.


This exhibition will also help to raise awareness of manufacturing in the build up to the launch of a new manufacturing framework in the autumn which will detail specific plans for encouraging growth in this sector.
