Purpose of the reports

Sustainability West Midlands (SWM) delivered the Local Authority Low Carbon Economy Programme on behalf of Improvement and Efficiency West Midlands (IEWM) between 2010 and 2014. As part of this programme, SWM has developed and used a good practice benchmarking framework which allows local authorities to assess their progress and performance in addressing climate change and the low carbon economy. This methodology has been replicated for the 2016 round of reporting for the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA), who will use the information obtained to feed into their Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) and to identify good practice at a local scale, that can be supported and scaled up across the WMCA area.

SWM undertook the benchmarking exercise in 2016 and have produced this high-level summary report covering activity across the West Midlands.
