West Midlands Mayor Andy Street outlines his Net Zero strategy

With almost 70% of the world’s population expected to be living in cities by 2050, it is essential that we rethink urban environments if we are to achieve our Net Zero targets. Global infrastructure consulting firm, Aecom, partners with local authorities and Metro Mayors to develop and deliver decarbonisation strategies that meet the complex challenges of specific cities and regions that help to build a more sustainable future.

Mayor of the West Midlands and Chair of West Midlands Combined Authority, Andy Street, outlines his climate strategy for Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton and the Black Country, which includes initiatives like Net Zero Neighbourhoods and a Virtual Forest alongside improved decarbonised mass-transit systems and innovation hubs that build on the region's heritage to drive the Fourth Industrial Revolution around climate tech and clean growth.

AECOM works globally across all sectors, bringing integrated knowledge and best practice to create and deliver holistic solutions to urban areas.  From estate decarbonisation and active travel planning to regional resilience strategies and flood alleviation schemes, the business partners with city region clients to leave sustainable, lasting legacies for communities and the planet.
