The transition to a low carbon economy will impact communities and workers that are already being affected by job losses, stagnant wages and precarious work. The Just Transition framework looks to place the voices of affected workers and other impacted communities at the center of conversations on the transition to a low carbon economy. This webinar looks at the role that investors can play to ensure that the social dimensions of the low carbon transition are considered in efforts to tackle climate change.
