Supporting the transition of workers from declining industries into secure, sustainable jobs-rich industries.
The Greens are committed to supporting the transition of workers from declining industries into secure, sustainable jobs-rich industries. The federal government should be a key player in transitioning industries and ensuring workers are supported through those changes.
Supporting industries which protect workers’ rights and have an emphasis on environmental sustainability is a Greens priority at both the local and national level. The Greens advocate for the provision of direct industry assistance towards the energy efficiency and renewable energy industries, in order to spur research and development, overcome market inertia, create secure employment and rapidly decarbonise the economy.
