Climate Justice

Tackling climate change to improve workers’ lives. 

Transport is a significant and growing source of carbon emissions, so transport unions need to have their say on emissions and climate change. 

The ITF is committed to supporting and coordinating trade union initiatives on climate change. We’ve developed a programme of work following our climate conference in Mexico City – we’d love for you to be involved.
