Purpose of the report

Formed in 2010, the West Midlands Property Alliance (WMPA) has led the way in co-ordinating a programme of projects and activities that have delivered over £3.2 million of efficiency savings and are on target to deliver a 10 year savings programme of £173 million together with CO2 reductions of 55,000 tonnes per annum. The WMPA and SWM have provided leadership, commitment and support to the ongoing development of a proactive network to represent the low carbon economy sector at strategic and operational levels, share and showcase best practice and to work collaboratively to explore carbon and energy reduction. Chaired by Martin Reeves, Chief Executive of Coventry City Council and Improvement and Efficiency West Midlands (IEWM) Board Member, the WMPA supported councils across the West Midlands to deliver this impressive programme. The IEWM sponsored Low Carbon Management Programme has invested nearly £0.4m to support many of the projects showcased within this report. This report highlights yearly efficiency savings of £3.2m to date from a wide variety of innovative projects.
