How can we build common cause between labour unions and climate campaigners on the future of high-carbon work?
I was lead author on a major report from the New Economics Foundation. Trust in Transition was well received by energy unions (for example) – who have historically been disappointed at the lack of empathy and engagement from those whose campaign demands could devastate workforces, communities, and entire regions of the UK.
“Trust in transition to a zero-carbon economy is essential for a national mission to respond proactively and fairly to the climate and ecological crisis… those who are most affected on the ground must have a real and meaningful voice. Dialogue is essential.”
