A just energy transition is increasingly viewed as important in confronting the energy and climate crises. Creating a healthy fossil fuel free world requires re-imagining a new clean energy future. The just energy transition needed to address climate change should deliver a system of diverse technology, innovative solutions, and decentralised ownership, with a focus on people, health, and the environment. To be a truly just transition it must ensure the transformation is restorative, by remediating the damage done to nature and health during the fossil fuel era.
This briefing reviews health benefits available through an effective just energy transition, and presents key principles and policy recommendations needed to deliver a clean energy future for thriving healthy societies.
