Just Transition for energy workers

Just Transition is about the fair treatment of workers and communities most affected by change as we move to a lower carbon world.

Prospect represents more than 20,000 energy workers, and as the UK moves towards a low-carbon economy, we still do not have a coherent plan that puts those workers and communities at the heart of future energy policy.

Prospect, and the wider trade union movement across the energy sector, is campaigning for a ‘just transition’ for those affected.

What does a just transition mean?

  • A balanced low-carbon energy mix
  • Investment in skills and infrastructure
  • Protecting and creating high-quality jobs and employment
  • No community left behind.
