Time to get serious about climate change:
The AGM Theme is “Time to get serious about climate change”.

What kind of Industrial Strategy will be needed to get us to net zero carbon?

About the GJA
The Greener Jobs Alliance was launched to promote skills training and job creation to meet the needs of Britain’s rapidly growing low carbon sectors and to green the whole economy. The Greener Jobs Alliance liaises at a national and local level to build the broadest possible support for the policies, investment, partnerships and commitments needed to cut air pollution and drive the transition to a low carbon economy in which employers ‘green’ their operations within clear national policies and incentives to raise the workforce interests in training for low carbon skills and seeing its relevance for job security. The Greener Jobs Alliance liaises with training bodies, colleges, universities, employers, local and national government, trade unions, housing associations and campaign and community groups – to build the policies, investment and partnerships needed to drive the transition to a low carbon economy.
