In December 2020, the WA Government released Collie’s Just Transition Plan. The Just Transition Plan is the State Government’s commitment to working with the community and industry to deliver a Just Transition for Collie.
The purpose of a Just Transition is to create a strong and sustainable future for Collie as it shifts away from a dependence on coal and coal-fired energy production. While the commitment to a Just Transition will need to be long term, the Just Transition Plan provides the first step of this commitment and allows a focus on actions that will help provide the foundation for a successful transition.
The Just Transition Plan was developed in collaboration with the Just Transition Working Group, comprising local industry, community, union and government stakeholders, and focusses on a five-year period from 2021-2025.
The primary goal of the Just Transition is to support affected workers and communities in the transition from emissions-intensive industries in a coordinated way.
