Future-Proofing Our Work: Protecting Our Jobs and Our Planet Through Worker Action

Tackling the climate emergency will require action across every part of Scotland, including every workplace and sector.

Your experience and skills are essential to identify what support will be needed to protect and improve your jobs, as well as the risks you face from extreme weather at work.

The move to a net zero economy is an opportunity to create good work, to rebuild our communities, to get cleaner air and build warmer homes.

As workers and union reps, you are the key to meeting our climate targets and getting the move to a net zero economy right.

Tell Us What You Need
