REC has taken part in the first stage of the Grow Green consultation which is seeking the views of companies offering services and products which can contribute to climate adaptation in the region. Greater Manchester has committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2038.
Grow Green is a five-year project aiming to increase liveability, sustainability and business opportunities in cities. Grow Green is also aiming to make nature part of the urban living environment to improve the quality of life and prosperity for residents and businesses alike.
The views of the selected companies taking part – including environmental consultancy REC – will help inform policy-makers’ recommendations in regards to nature-based and engineering solutions for climate and water-related challenges.
REC – headquartered in Manchester – is pleased to have been chosen as a key contributor due to its extensive experience in advising on environmental air quality and noise, biodiversity, sustainability and geo-environmental solutions.
‘We’re delighted to be contributing to the sustainability agenda for Greater Manchester’ said REC Commercial Director, Rob Whittle. ‘We’ve been advising clients on environmental issues in region since the mid-90s’.
