"Just transition" is an approach to environmental policy-making developed by the labour movement that aims to minimize the impact of environmental policies on workers in affected industries and communities and to involve workers in decisions about their livelihoods. 

This report draws on extensive interviews with resource sector workers in several industries—in which researchers listened to their concerns, experiences and ideas—to inform a strategy that ensures climate action doesn’t worsen already-high levels of economic insecurity in resource-dependent communities.
