Businesses, trade unions, governments and individuals around the world are taking action to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The shift toward this clean energy economy will build robust communities and industries, spurring new job growth, diversifying educational opportunities and transforming livelihoods. A truly just transition will ensure that everyone shares in the benefits, and has an opportunity to thrive in the net-zero world.
The private and public sectors can help facilitate a just transition that builds a blueprint for all citizens and communities to thrive in 2050.
In our latest video, B Team Leaders Richard Branson, Sharan Burrow, Bob Collymore, David Crane, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Paul Polman and Mary Robinson join Leah Seligmann, Director of The B Team’s Net-Zero by 2050 initiative and Sam Smith, Director of the Just Transition Centre to offer their thoughts on how we can approach a just transition. They discuss the importance of beginning active and open dialogues with workers, building secure employment across all sectors and planning to deploy the skills of the workforce across these new opportunities.
From honouring the contributions of fossil-fuel sector workers to investing in clean energy job growth, leaders can take action now to build a sustainable and equitable future for all.
