Just Transition: Making the green transformation work for all of us

Just Transition: Making the green transformation work for all of us

We are living through a global climate and nature emergency. According to the United Nations, we have fewer than ten years remaining to avert the worst impacts of catastrophic climate change. The actions we take as a country and a world between now and 2030 will be defining for generations to come.

Meeting this challenge will require us to transform so many of the things we do, from the way we travel and the cars we drive to the way we heat our homes, use our land and power our country. Yet a greener economy is not necessarily a fairer one. If all we do is put a green coat of paint on our unequal, insecure economy, then it will be the richest who continue to benefit from climate transition – and the most vulnerable who lose out. Labour is clear that this can't happen. 

As we tackle the climate crisis, we need to do so in a way that makes our country fairer, more secure and more prosperous. A “just transition” can be our lever to improve living standards, create good jobs and rectify the inequalities that still scar the UK - but what does this mean in practice?
