Just transition in the UK


Researchers in the Centre for Employment Relations Innovation and Change have embarked on a research programme that considers how climate crisis and mitigation, decarbonisation, and net zero will impact the world of work.

We study the transformation process towards a new social-ecological organisation of the economy with an interest in how it will affect workers, and how workers can shape this transformation. That this transformation is fair and just for workers and communities is not only a political demand, but a principle guiding this transformation.

We are a group of researchers with a background in employment relations, sociology of work, economics, and engineering, interested in shaping this Just Transition in the UK. We collaborate with the Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission, trade unions, think tanks, and businesses.
