Circular Economy Club Birmingham
15 June 2021
“WM2041: A Programme for Implementing an Environmental Recovery” set out the urgent activity and need for the WMCA and stakeholders to produce five-year delivery plans (four in total, the first of which was approved in March this year) with targets, to include interim carbon budgets and other metrics in support of delivering 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, as well as the priorities to begin a local movement across different sectors and how this can be scaled up over time.
The creation of the Routemap is now underway, with the aim of developing a practical and engaging West Midlands Circular Economy Routemap, in collaboration with key stakeholders, that sets out a vision for circular economy in the region, headline opportunities for key sectors, and a clear plan for delivery and implementation.
Richard Rees from the West Midlands Combined Authority will present an overview of the work on the Routemap to date, which will be followed by a Q&A and discussion session to gain feedback from Birmingham & West Midlands CEC members.
