Just Transition Centre

Welcome to the Just Transition Centre

Who we are and what we do:

The Just Transition Centre was established in 2016 by the ITUC and partners. The Centre brings together workers and their unions, businesses and governments in social dialogue and stakeholder engagement with communities and civil society to ensure that labour has a seat at the table when planning for a Just Transition to a low-carbon world.

A Just Transition secures the future and livelihoods of workers and their communities in the transition to a low-carbon economy. It is based on social dialogue between workers and their unions, employers, and government, and consultation with communities and civil society. A plan for Just Transition provides and guarantees better and decent jobs, social protection, more training opportunities and greater job security for all workers affected by global warming and climate change policies.

The Just Transition Centre works with stakeholders to accelerate the Just Transition process through:

  • Empowering workers and their allies through sharing examples of Just Transition processes and plans, facilitating peer-to-peer skill and experience sharing, and capacity building on Just Transition.
  • Documenting best practice in social dialogue processes through interviews, videos, reports and case studies.
  • Starting and supporting social dialogue processes involving unions, communities, government and business, with participation from investors and experts.
  • Strategic input to national and global policy dialogues and planning on Just Transition.
