LBR developed case studies showing the social impact of moving to a low carbon economy for areas of heavy industry. The focus of the work related to the social impact on those who lose work as a result of the move towards low carbon industries and how this process is managed.

Agulhas wanted support in researching the social impact of moving to a low carbon economy for an investment fund. They wanted this research to be collated and synthesized into a report which would clearly identify the common themes in managing industrial transition. They wanted the report to present key findings and recommendations on how this transition can be made more easily from a social impact perspective.

The challenge

Identifying the common themes in managing industrial transition.

Identifying areas for which data on industrial transition is available and that tracks the impact of these transitions on the work force and communities in a given location

Providing recommendations on how this transition can be made more easily.

The results

A report with a high level summary informed by a broad literature review, that sought to identify common themes in managing industrial transitions.

What happened next

The aim of the work was to create a picture of the available evidence and the evidence gaps, and to identify the best examples of transition management for use when considering the future funding of projects.
