NWDA Sustainable Buildings Policy: Awareness Raising and Knowledge Transfer Programme Event looking at Policy Objective: Business (Local Supply Chain) 24th September: 13.30 – 16.30 Venue: CUBE, Manchester ‘To ensure that development contributes to the sustainable economic vitality of the local area and region…as well as sustaining existing and successful economies in the region, there is a need to ensure we find new and imaginative ways to build thriving and sustainable local economies’ NWDA Sustainable Building Policy. This policy objective is concerned with supporting the idea that NWDA grant funding supports businesses at a regional and sub-regional level. This is concerned with two key different issues. The first is the support of local businesses, generally, to ensure that investment expenditure within the region is to the benefit of businesses locally. The second issue is the development of key industries within the region. For the purposes of the Sustainable Building Policy the key focus is with regards to local supply chains. This event will look to raise awareness of how this can be successfully achieved.
