On 5th June, we marked World Environment Day and united with millions of people across the globe to commit to tackling climate change.
I believe that Just Transition may offer the answer to combating the climate crisis, while protecting the communities we serve.
The question we all need to ask ourselves is, where and how do we hope to live in 30 years’ time?
The climate emergency is worsening at an alarming rate, and we are working against the clock when it comes to finding the right solution.
Just Transition is a framework developed by the International Trade Union Confederation. It involves eradicating poverty and promoting social inclusion, while reducing emissions in line with global commitments to tackle climate breakdown.
There’s no doubt that building a zero-carbon economy will see major social and economic changes.
Just Transition seeks to ensure that workers are not left behind in the fight against climate change and that measures taken to reduce emissions do not harm the communities we serve.
The future is at stake for this generation and generations to come, and I believe that Just Transition offers an efficient and fair solution to the climate crisis.
