Ensuring fairness for workers in a clean economy

Effective policies are essential for supporting fossil fuel workers and communities in transition.

Moving toward a clean energy future is our best path for growing the economy and averting the worst impacts of climate change. As this transition accelerates, policymakers must ensure that fossil fuel workers and communities have the tools and support they need.

EDF is partnering with Resources for the Future to review policies that can support and prepare workers and communities reliant on fossil fuels.

Our work

Through this partnership, we will be exploring a variety of policy challenges. Additionally, this series will explore international policy analyses and U.S. case studies, including Tonawanda, New York; Athens, Ohio; and Colstrip, Montana.
