Bee Net Zero



Trafford Park is the largest industrial park in Europe and a major contributor to Greater Manchester’s economy, but it is also the single largest carbon emitter across the city-region. Bee Net Zero | Trafford Park is a new partnership between Trafford Council, Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Growth Company, which aims to support businesses on the park to reduce their emissions and improve efficiency.



Business accounts for around a fifth of all carbon emissions and as such has an important role to play in supporting Greater Manchester’s net zero target of 2038. But this isn’t just good for the planet! Businesses that reduce their carbon footprint can achieve multiple commercial benefits including:

Improved cashflow


Increased competitiveness

New customers

New technologies

Attract and retain talent




To help businesses take advantage of these opportunities, Trafford Council , GMCA and the Growth Company have established a dedicated support programme to help you to measure your carbon footprint and implement bespoke solutions to achieve your commercial and sustainability objectives.
