In June 2019, the WMCA declared a climate emergency and set a target of zero-carbon for the West Midlands by 2041.
In 2020 we published a green paper to start a conversation about the actions required for the region to achieve its carbon target, whilst delivering an inclusive, prosperous, and fair transition that leaves nobody behind.
The analysis of the feedback from the consultation
coincided with the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and the WMCA produced
“WM2041 – A Programme for Implementing an Environmental Recovery."
