Our city’s shared plan to tackle climate change


Green is the New Black

Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 18:00 to 21:00
Tesla Store Manchester Knutsford, 21 - 29 Tatton St, Canute Place, Knutsford WA16 6BQ

Green just might very well be the new black, and no-one demonstrates that better than electric car innovator Tesla.


Join us on 14th September at the Tesla Centre in Knutsford, for a drinks reception and panel discussion on how improving your environmental performance can fast-track your business. Whether it’s saving money, attracting talent or making you stand out from the competition, green practices can not only make a positive difference to the planet, but to your bottom line too.


We will be hosting a lively discussion for Greater Manchester businesses with some of the region’s key spokespeople on the green agenda, followed by a chance to eat, drink and network, all while admiring some of the world’s most incredible cars.


All delegates will be given a complimentary passenger ride in the Tesla Model S where they will be taken from 0 to 60mph in less than 3 seconds! 


We will also be holding a prize draw to give one lucky winner the chance to drive away in a Tesla for the day - proof that green credentials can raise anyone’s adrenaline levels!
