Just Transition

From Open Risk Manual


Just Transition means that countries choose to green their economy through Sustainability Transition pathways and approaches that reinforce equality and inclusivity. [1]

This means looking at the impacts of the transition on different groups of workers across the economy and providing opportunities for training and reskilling that support decent work and aim to leave no one behind.

In the context of climate change, transitioning to a low-carbon or Net Zero economy requires massive transformation of our economic systems. Such transformation runs the risk of further increasing social inequality, exclusion, civil unrest, and less competitive businesses, sectors, and markets.

As countries work to meet their climate goals, it’s vital that they ensure the whole-of-society - all communities, all workers, all social groups - are brought along and part of the structural change that takes place.
