The Green Innovation Challenge Themes

5PRING has launched a Green Innovation Challenge in partnership with the West Midlands Combined Authority’s (WMCA) and Suez. This challenge supports the WMCA’s wider ambitions to deliver on WM2041 programme to tackle climate change and Suez’s ambition around circular economy and reducing water consumption.

5PRING’s Green Innovation Challenge will help to drive the delivery of the ambitious targets set out in the West Midlands’ WM2041 strategy, and the programme is encouraging small businesses looking to develop cutting edge technologies that reduce carbon emissions to apply and accelerate their solutions.
