The Just Transition Challenge in Scotland
The Just Transition Partnership submission to the Just Transition Commission ahead of their Interim Report.
The purpose of the Commission is to advise Scottish Ministers on how to apply Just Transition principles to Scotland. The outcomes referenced in these principles are:
- environmentally and socially sustainable jobs, sectors and economies;
- resource efficient and sustainable economic approaches which help address inequality and poverty;
- low carbon investment and infrastructure and to create decent, fair and high value work.
This is a demanding agenda and the Partnership’s contribution is intended to provide helpful insight at this point in the work of the Commission of the main constituent challenges and what is known about them.
Specific policy recommendations from the Just Transition Partnership are highlighted in bold in the text and brought together in the final section.
