The purpose of Just Transition Plans is to: • maximise the economic benefits of Scotland’s transition to net zero, including ensuring a pipeline of skills for net zero jobs; • ensure fair distribution of opportunities, benefits and risks, including consideration of community benefits, and how to adapt to the impacts of climate change; and • ensure an inclusive and fair process via co-design with stakeholders, trade unions and the public.

In Scotland, our Just Transition Planning Framework sets out eight national Just Transition Outcomes, these have been distilled into the energy sector specific outcomes which can be found in Annex F. These outcomes will be shaped further through additional co-design with stakeholders, trade unions and the public, and through the consultation on this draft Strategy and Plan. Given that this is a joint Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan, this document will look quite different to other sectoral Just Transition Plans. In the first half of 2023, a series of outline draft Just Transition Plans for Buildings and Construction, Land Use and Agriculture and Transport will be published. These drafts will then be tested and refined following an extensive co-design process. All Just Transition Plans will demonstrate how we will maximise the economic opportunities for Scotland.

This draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan outlines how we will do this including growing net zero energy sectors, supporting communities, workers, citizens and businesses, driving investment and increasing trade opportunities. The people of Scotland must reap the economic benefit of the energy transition, and this chapter sets out how we will leverage government expenditure to support these ambitions. We are also working with partners across the Grangemouth Future Industry Board to deliver a Just Transition Plan for the Grangemouth Industrial Cluster.
