Circular Economy Club Birmingham & The West Midlands
“WM2041: A Programme for Implementing an Environmental Recovery” set out the urgent activity and need for the West Midlands Combined Authority and stakeholders to produce five-year delivery plans (four in total, the first of which was approved in March this year) with targets to support the delivery of the zero carbon target for the West Midlands by 2041.
The urgent activity included the need to establish a Circular Economy Taskforce for the West Midlands and produce a Routemap to identify the possible benefits from a circular economy approach for the region. The creation of this Routemap is now underway, with Richard Rees from the West Midlands Combined Authority providing an overview of the work that has been carried out thus far on the Routemap. There will then be a Q&A session whereby members of the Birmingham& West Midlands Circular Economy Club will be able to provide their feedback
