State Plan 2020-2023
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)
A report to the Legislature, developed pursuant to Assembly Bill 398 (E. Garcia, Chapter 135, Statutes of 2017), offering the State a vision for ensuring that major climate policies and programs support high-quality jobs with accessible training pathways to them, particularly for disadvantaged Californians.
