Scotland launches Just Transition Commission to 'pave way to low carbon future'

Scotland has announced a new taskforce to advise on securing a fair transition away from fossil fuels that ensures carbon intensive industries and the people they employ can "maximise the opportunities of a low carbon future". The Just Transition Commission, which was launched yesterday, will provide advice to the Scottish Government on its decarbonisation plans, and how to deliver fair work and tackle inequalities through a "sustainable and inclusive labour market", it said yesterday.
