Fair Future

Climate change is the greatest single challenge that humanity currently faces. In order to bring climate change to a halt some major changes are going to be necessary. We will only be able to accomplish this if everyone participates and is able to participate. Keeping climate change under control will require significant investments of capital. What we are trying to do in the Netherlands is to ensure that the distribution of the costs of the transition between the people and the corporations is more equitable as well as that between the wealthy and those with more modest incomes. The aim of our Fair Future campaigns is the realization of this just transition, and the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions.
