Our Partnership with Business

A WM2041 Net Zero Business Pledge has been launched to provide an umbrella to support, engage and celebrate regional organisations on the journey to net zero, linking different regional networks together. We are working with other business-facing organisations (e.g. Sustainability West Midlands, the Chamber, Business in the Community and the Federation for Small Businesses) to coordinate action.

The West Midlands Regional Energy Strategy sets out a range of challenges facing the in relation to the cost of energy and how this impacts our businesses and our citizens. This is what makes our energy systems and how efficient and ‘smart’ they are, so important to our region. Although we don’t have huge clean energy generation schemes in the region, the transition to net zero offers significant opportunities for local businesses; from vehicle to grid, demand flexibility, monitoring and storage opportunities; to solutions to the decarbonisation of our industrial base, commercial businesses and homes.
