Corporate Responsibility

Marketing Manchester is committed to leading tourism in Greater Manchester towards a greener future and as an organisation, has taken action in a wide range of environmental issues.

These include energy, water and waste efficiency measures, recycling facilities, the establishment of a Green Action Group, environmental-awareness training for employees, provision of Fair Trade refreshments in the staff kitchen, and promoting the use of public transport both to employees and visitors to Manchester.

Visit Manchester was delighted that in September 2010, all of this hard work and commitment to sustainability was recognised when we were presented with a Gold award from GTBS. we also achived a Silver accreditation with the Manchester Environmental Business Pledge in December 2009. In 2012 we were re-awarded Gold by GTBS and achived Gold with the Manchester Environmental Business Pledge.
