Developing a masterplan for the implementation of a zero net emissions climate transition that combines the best mitigation options with a focus on social justice.

Body Text

Competitive advantage

  • The first project to incorporate robust measures of the social justice benefits of a climate transition in Australia
  • Delivering a unique and important outcome by combining a focus on the most appropriate infrastructure/technologies for a climate transition with a focus on the social justice dimension of doing so; especially the needs of vulnerable communities


  • Climate transitions will involve significant changes to the generation and delivery of energy, the organisation of infrastructure and to lifestyles. All of these changes involve crucial ethical choices concerning the fairest way to deploy and pay for new technologies, adaptation and mitigation measures
  • For a transition to succeed it must, of course, reduce emissions. It must also ensure that the benefits and burdens of any transition—such as its financial cost, lifestyle sacrifices, monetary benefits—are fairly shared within society. This dimension is crucial to ensuring that vulnerable individuals and communities are not made worse off by any transition strategies
