Purpose of the resource

Sustainability West Midlands (SWM) is the sustainability delivery partner for the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). This update is part of an ongoing support programme to help the WMCA integrate sustainability within its strategy and operations, drawing on good local and national practice.

This report to the SWM Board on the 19 October 2017, involved updating the Board members on progress to date, next steps, and to seek advice on key issues such as the type of members for the new WMCA Environment Delivery Board, how to engage stakeholders outside this board, and how to build the longer-term capacity of the WMCA and partners.

The resulting discussion and advice is reflected in this updated presentation.

SWM is currently working with the WMCA to secure the resources to help deliver the agreed draft plan and report progress to the Mayor and Cllr Harley at our annual conference in November.
