Greener Solihull for Success
Sustainability is about living in a way that meets our current needs without compromising the needs of future generations.
Greener Solihull for Success is about ensuing Solihull is leading the way; it is about celebrating our borough’s successes and planning for a sustainable future by protecting the borough’s environment and by embracing the low carbon economy.
The roadmap that we are using to guide this work is the Green Prospectus. This document sets out the borough’s goals and how it will achieve them, and so this map is annually reviewed and updated, with achieved actions dropping off and new/emerging issues replacing them.
Progress on the actions are reported six monthly:
Further details on actions and best practice in delivering the themes can be seen in the 2017/18 Theme Report and the 2016/17 Theme Reports.
On the 8 October 2019 Members of Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council unanimously agree a statement of intent to protect the environment. The full statement can be read here.
The Council has a Sustainability Strategy which was published in 2012, and the Green Prospectus builds upon.
