Question weight


Criteria met if climate action (alternatively called sustainability or environment) is listed as one of the combined authority's core priorities or equivalent. It must have its own heading or section and a net-zero target date must be referenced.

The net-zero target date must be an area-wide target, either the UK Government's national target, the devolved nation's target or the combined authority's area-wide net-zero target.


A Local Industrial Strategy is a strategy led by Mayoral Combined Authorities or Local Enterprise Partnerships which aims to promote the coordination of local economic policy and national funding streams and establish new ways of working between national and local government, and the public and private sectors.

All combined authorities will be marked on this question, whether they lead or are just part of the strategy.
