First Just Transition report to be published today

The first report of the Just Transition Commissioner Kieran Mulvey is to be published today.

The report was requested last year by the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and the Environment Richard Bruton.

The report is aimed at finding ways to help workers at Bord na Mona and ESB who will lose their jobs as a result of the movement away from harvesting peat.

Hundreds of workers have already been laid off as a result of the early closure of power stations in Lanesboro and Shannonbridge.
