Spanning the heart of the UK, the Midlands is the largest regional economy outside London. The Midlands Engine partnership represents 11 million people and 816,000 businesses — an economy worth over £246 billion per year.

Working in partnership with regional firms and public sector bodies, we focus on tackling the things that really matter in our region to drive prosperity for our communities and businesses.

Our members include 18 local authorities and the West Midlands Combined Authority, nine local enterprise partnerships and our region’s 20 world-class universities. We also work with a rapidly growing number of private sector partners, collaborating and investing together to achieve our shared aims for regional success.

Together, we make sure the Midlands voice is heard and act as a positive agent for economic, social and environmental change, to benefit every single part of our region. We do this through shared intent, collaborative investment and presenting a strong, unified voice, direct to government.

Our TenPoint Plan for Green Growth in the Midlands Engine sets out, with a unified voice, the actions to be taken in partnership which will accelerate our region’s and the UK’s path to net zero. Together, we can drive collective action today to safeguard the environment for future generations.

Exceptional work in low carbon is already underway across our vast Midlands Engine partnership landscape, making the Midlands a leading location for green growth. But the potential for more is phenomenal. Under the plan, the Midlands region will act as a centre for excellence in new technologies and clean fuels, such as hydrogen, as we complement existing partner initiatives and capitalise on the wealth of economic opportunities presented by the shift to low carbon.
