IPPR, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) and the Zero Carbon Campaign (ZCC) have been working together to help bridge this gap, holding three workshops in August and September 2021 to explore the risks and benefits of decarbonisation and the potential impacts of the net zero transition on those living in poverty.
This briefing provides a summary of these workshops, where IPPR brought together organisations focused on addressing the climate and nature crises and anti-poverty groups to help create a shared understanding of the poverty and inequality risks that could arise from the transition, as well as the potential benefits and opportunities for those on low incomes. The workshops explored three areas - transport, homes, and food.
