Australia is already in a state of energy transition and failure to better plan and coordinate this transition will continue to create significant detrimental impacts on those communities which currently rely on fossil fuel generation, transmission and distribution for employment. As such, an environmental justice approach should be taken which recognises not only that the impacts of climate change will have disproportionate impacts on certain communities, but so too will policy decisions made to address the climate crisis, if not done well. A national net zero body is a good way to ameliorate these impacts as Australia moves to decarbonise, and to assist with planning a transition that leaves no community behind.
