Climate Jobs in the UK

This event presented the results of modelling to estimate the net number of jobs that could be created in each local authority area by the transition to a zero carbon economy, in the key sectors of energy, transport, waste management, buildings and food, farming and forestry.

Location: Bristol City Hall, Room IP05, 18.30 - 19.45, Friday 5th October 2018

Policies to reduce greenhouse emissions are often attacked for threatening existing jobs. Would there be a net loss of jobs from the transition to a zero-carbon economy, or a net gain? It was a fringe event as part of the Green Party conference.  A revised version of the presentation given at this event can be downloaded here.
