Midlands Engine Green Growth

Midlands Engine Green Growth

by Gareth Roberts

The Government’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution sets out the approach to build back better, support green jobs and accelerate our nation’s path to net zero.

The Midlands Engine is the first pan regional partnership in the UK to propose clear and urgent action to deliver this plan, in the form of our own Ten Point Plan for Green Growth in the Midlands Engine.

In every part of the Midlands, pace is gathering around rich and diverse specialisms in low carbon energy based on historic sector strengths, wide-ranging natural assets, and ever-more-urgent needs and opportunities.

Our Ten Point Plan for Green Growth will complement all of this groundbreaking work. It prioritises ten key areas for action that will: benefit every part of our region; enable us to build back stronger, better and greener; and effectively accelerate our path to net zero.

The role of the Midlands Engine in all of this is to connect, champion and amplify. We will be
successful through our collective effort, with each partner working to their own strengths,
supporting and complementing each other to add value.

Consultation Phase:

All Midlands Engine partners and regional stakeholders now have the opportunity to provide further input as part of our Ten Point Plan consultation.

The Consultation Draft of our Ten Point Plan has been created with intelligence and insights gathered from an impressive spectrum of key business leaders, researchers, thought leaders, local government champions, and conservation and wildlife specialists; through the uniting power of the Midlands Engine.

It is just a start. The proposals in the Plan are the basis for further iteration and dialogue and as we now embark on our consultation process, we once again turn to the powerful force that is the Midlands Engine Partnership.

We are pleased to invite all our partners to now sense check this draft plan as follows:
