To achieve a new (global) energy future that is just and fair there must be a focus on justice issues associated with the increased supply of ETMs. This report uses results from the Just Transitions and the Pacific project to address the central dilemmas of the ‘energy transition-extractives nexus’, namely: as energy transitions drive global demand for ETMs, how do we account for and mitigate justice issues that arise from intensified pressure to extract in specific regions, like the Pacific for example?
The Just Transitions and the Pacific project was funded by the British Academy. It was a collaboration between the Centre for Energy Ethics and the University of Queensland’s Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining.
