Labor Network for Sustainability (LNS)

LNS engages workers, trade unionists, and their allies and helps them become fully engaged in addressing climate change and the movement to build a sustainable future for the planet and its people.

LNS’s work is focused largely on climate change, energy and a just transition away from non-sustainable sources. Its work is to organize and motivate the kind of dialogue that will help us build a new democratic economy that works for everyone; a labor movement that is fully engaged as part of the solution to the climate crisis – with a climate plan of its own – and as a central player in the movement to build a sustainable future for the planet and its people; and an environmental movement that fully understands how interconnected ecological issues are with jobs issues, and has a jobs plan of its own.
