Manchester plans for low carbon transport

Manchester plans for low carbon transport
The city of Manchester could be marketed as the "low carbon capital" of the UK if plans for improvements to public transport go ahead, according to a sales and marketing director.

Phil Jones of Brother UK claimed that when the city makes improvements to its public transit system, Manchester could use its low-carbon status to attract "millions of pounds" of investments from firms looking to set up a UK base in a green city, according to a report from Crain's Manchester Business.

He added that the UK subsidiary for Brother employs around 201 staff members, 40 of whom are involved in a flexible work from home scheme designed to help the firm lower its carbon footprint.

Meanwhile, a spokesman from the Greater Manchester Momentum Group suggested to the news source that alternative working arrangements - such as a work from home scheme - could help to cut carbon emissions caused by transport while also avoiding a Manchester congestion charge.

The Middleton Guardian reported last week that the cost of a proposed congestion charge in Manchester could be around £7.50 per day.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18561090-ADNFCR
