Sustainability West Midlands is the sustainability champion for the West Midlands as designated by government.
We are a not-for-profit company that works with our members in the business, public and voluntary sectors. Our role is to act as a catalyst for change through our advice to leaders, to develop practical solutions with our members and share success through our communications.
Our vision: by 2020 businesses and communities are thriving in a West Midlands that is environmentally sustainable and socially just
To deliver our mission, we have developed a set of sustainability priority actions for the West Midlands based on collaborative research worth around £1 million. Our roadmap below identifies the current challenges facing the West Midlands, as well as the priority actions needed to make change happen. Through cross-sector working across local authority boundaries, we look to create a region with more low carbon jobs, reduced levels of carbon and improved life expectancy.
How are we doing?
We review progress on key indicators, new research and case studies at our annual conference. Our 2017 monitoring report identifies progress against the economic, social and environmental sustainability goals for the West Midlands as set out in our 2020 Roadmap.
