What is the West Midlands doing in particular to quash its carbon footprint and reach net zero?

“When setting our target, we didn’t just pick a number out of the air for when we would achieve net zero. We did a lot of research with some leading universities to say when is it realistic? We chose 2041, it’s right in the middle of the pack, some have gone for 2030, of course the national government is 2050 – we’re in the middle but believe it is an achievable goal.”
