Low Carbon South West

A major international environmental trade show will be staged in Bristol later this year and will be organized by Low Carbon South West, a South West trade body. ETS UK or Environmental Trade Show UK 2011 will be the largest of its kind in and takes place October 13 in the exhibition centre at the University of the West of England.

This will provide a UK organization with a major platform to showcase their skills, knowledge and innovations of what lies at the country’s heart of the emerging environmental sector.

A significant Coalition announcement precedes the launch of the trade show committing the UK to have carbon emissions cuts that are legally binding over the next two decades reinforcing the future of the UK economy and the importance of this sector.

Sponsors include iNet, Environmental Technologies, Lyons Davidson, Britannia Construction and the Bristol City Council and will include one day workshops and conferences. There are expected to be over 250 stands and over 1000 people attending and will include a number of zones that are themed like International Trade, Sustainable Transport and Renewable Energy as well as an area with a technology demonstrator.

Chairman of Low Carbon South West, Alan Bailey has said that ETS UK is very important to the UK since the Government has agreed to bind the carbon emissions cuts legally. This will help to enable the UK to maintain its place as the leading provider of low carbon services and goods worldwide.

The conference and trade show will be the place to find green business and will remain a leading event for the business calendar each year. Founder Director of Forum for the Future Jonathan Porritt said that the South West is a well established leader in the Low Carbon sector. The UK continues to remain on the cutting age of everything green.
