The shift to a resilient, low-carbon economy will boost prosperity and be a net driver of job creation. However, there will be transitional challenges for workers, communities and countries if this shift is not inclusive and sustainable. In this session we will discuss:

• what a just transition means in practice, focusing on the extractives, power and transport sectors;
• how investors can help to ensure that the transition is inclusive and fair; and
• how the outlook for a just transition differs across industries.
