A just energy transition is increasingly viewed as important in confronting the energy and climate crises. The G7, along with middle-income partners including India, Indonesia, and South Africa, is looking to establish Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETPs) to support coal phase-out1. Just energy transition is also a core demand among those calling for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty2, which envisions a decisive phase-out of all fossil fuel production and use. This briefing reviews health benefits available through an effective just energy transition and presents key principles and policy recommendations needed to deliver a clean energy future for thriving healthy societies.
