Just Transition Roadmap

Thank you for your interest in California’s Just Transition, the transition to carbon-neutrality that builds an equitable and sustainable society where all Californians share in the state’s economic prosperity.

The CWDB and Labor & Workforce Development Agency are working with the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) to develop the state’s first “Just Transition Roadmap” pursuant to Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-79-20 issued in September 2020.

We’d like to hear from you – what are your main interests, aspirations, concerns, priorities, and activities regarding just transition – as we develop the state’s first Just Transition Roadmap. Please take our brief survey,  join our listserv, and save the date for public workshops in early May 2021: OPR webpage.

Once the Roadmap is released in July 2021, the real work of just transition – centered in, and driven by, California’s diverse regions with the State offering support and assistance wherever possible – will begin.

Climate & Labor Report (AB 398, 2017)
