A just transition to net zero: How can CBHAs and their communities get there?

The discourse around a just transition to net zero has become increasingly amplified over the last few years. For the Scottish Government a just transition is both the outcome – a fairer, greener future for all – and the process that must be undertaken in partnership with those impacted by the transition to net zero. The intention is that it supports a net zero and climate resilient economy in a way that delivers fairness and tackles inequality and injustice. On the face of it, it’s hard to argue that both aspirations should not go hand-in-hand, and that one cannot be achieved without the other.

However, when we consider the hard facts about the communities where our members are based, in terms of socio-economic deprivation, fuel poverty, health and other inequalities the move towards a just transition, and how this can be achieved, seems challenging to say the least. If tenants’ rents are expected to fund retrofit activities, then this is far from a just transition. Nonetheless, we know that our members are taking forward a variety of projects with pots of funding from various sources. Furthermore, they are keen to hear more about how the journey to a just transition might be achieved.

Our one-day summer conference this year explores all these issues and will give delegates the opportunity to hear from a range of key plenary speakers. As always, our ever-popular café sessions will feature Forum members talking about their associations’ activities and projects.
