PIP19 -Ensuring a just transition to a low-carbon economy

Presented by

Nabylah Abo Dehman, Manager, Social Issues, PRI

About this talk

The shift to a resilient, low-carbon economy will boost prosperity and be a net driver of job creation. However, there will be transitional challenges for workers, communities and countries if this shift is not inclusive and sustainable. In this session we will discuss: • what a just transition means in practice, focusing on the extractives, power and transport sectors; • how investors can help to ensure that the transition is inclusive and fair; and • how the outlook for a just transition differs across industries.
