【Report】Just Transition: Creating New Jobs for a Decarbonized Society
On September 10, 2021, Kiko Network published the report “Just Transition: Creating New Jobs for a Decarbonized Society,” which highlights examples of national, regional and local just transition happening all over the world.
“Just transition” is a concept that emphasizes the creation of quality employment, building a sustainable economy and making a fair and prosperous society in the shift to a decarbonized society. Just transition is mentioned in both the Paris Agreement and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) of the United Nations.
Just transition is already happening in countries, regions, and cities all around the world. Learning from their experiences, Japan should begin discussions on implementing concrete measures for a just transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2050.
This report collects examples of just transition from twelve countries around the world and provides a look at the past, present and future of just transition in Japan.
