The Climate Jobs and Just Transition Summit Videos
We were proud to be one the organizing sponsors of the Climate Jobs and Just Transition Summit that brought together labor leaders, union climate activists, environmental and environmental justice advocates, clean-energy developers, policymakers, and scientists to discuss how to build the clean-energy economy of tomorrow with strong union jobs.
The Summit sessions included: “Combating Climate Change, Reversing Inequality,” “Climate Change, Racial Justice and Economic Justice,” “The Next Generation of Buildings: Best Practices for Energy Efficiency and Solar Retrofits” and more.
