Climate jobs and the Green New Deal

We see a huge opportunity to create 6000+ jobs in South Yorkshire that would reduce our energy use – the obvious place to start is by insulating everyone’s home, reducing fuel poverty and the health problems it brings. Clean public transport and supporting active travel are also ways that investment could tackle climate change while bringing health benefits and creating good jobs.

The idea of a Green New Deal is rising up the agenda, showing how a transformation of work and infrastructure can bring social justice and climate safety.
