Socio-economic transitions have the potential to exacerbate existing inequalities. Without deliberate efforts to ensure inclusivity, marginalised groups and vulnerable communities may bear a disproportionate burden, facing economic hardships and social disadvantages. A just transition approach aims to mitigate this risk by prioritising equity, fairness, and the protection of livelihoods. This was the subject of a panel discussion held during the 2023 Trialogue Business in Society Conference. Panellists included Charlotte Mokoena from Sasol, Steve Nicholls from the Presidential Climate Commission, and Wendy Poulton from Strategic Mindsets. Trialogue, 22 June 2023.
