Towards a just transition for workers and affected communities

IEJ Position Paper – AUGUST 2022 - Just Transition

This IEJ position paper critically examines the ineffective policy basis that has thus far been developed by the public and private sector to address the climate emergency and to develop a response that will ensure and enable a just transition. The paper further outlines the framework for an alternative transformative pathway, by identifying six key principles, and putting forward five subsequent measures, that are needed to foster a just transition that truly centres the rights and well-being of both workers’ and affected communities.
