Open Meeting

Just transition, sustainable equality and distributional effects of climate change: links between research and policy

Almost 10 years ago, the successor to the international Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress, known for their report Mismeasuring Our Lives: Why GDP Doesn’t Add Up, published a new report Beyond GDP: Measuring What Counts for Economic and Social Performance in which the authors put more emphasis on inequality and sustainability. Trade unions have been demanding for more than twenty years that the transition to an environmentally sustainable economy should be a Just transition, a transition that is carried by the strongest shoulders rather than the weakest. Thanks to persistent pressure by trade unions, the concept has become an integral element of global climate policies but, as a broad principle with a variety of interpretations, it needs targeted policies set into the concrete socio-economic context to become effective. This event will provide a forum to present and discuss four recent publications looking from different angles into the transition to an environmentally sustainable economy and putting the emphasis on the interrelation between research and policy.
