UK Green Party backs Just Transition

The UK’s Green Party is backing green jobs and just transition, and says the green economy plan should be formulated in consultation with trade unions.

Green Party leader Caroline Lucas, speaking at a just transition workshop at the party’s autumn conference, said the issue of green jobs and just transition are “enshrined” in the party’s manifesto.

 She added: “Climate change isn’t just an environmental issue, it is very much a social issue, the most significant social justice issue that faces us today.”  She said it “is crucial to be talking to workers and the trade unions.”
