The promise from every government committing to net zero is that it will bring a jobs bonanza. In places this is true, but the winners will be sharp-elbowed and highly trained. Without serious planning, funding and re-skilling there will be just as many who lose jobs or income as the carbon economy winds down. So what are the keys to a just energy transition? (Hint: the UK hasn’t found them yet.) What does it take to retrain at scale – new laws, or a whole new culture?
This ThinkIn is part of Tortoise’s Accelerating Net Zero coalition. The initiative brings together our members and a network of organisations across a programme of ThinkIns and journalism devoted to accelerating progress towards Net Zero.
