6. A just transition is both the outcome – a fairer, greener future for all – and the process that must be undertaken in partnership with those impacted by the transition to net zero.

57. The 'Marcora Law' is named after an Italian law introduced in 1985 and gives workers support to organise a co-operative buyout or rescue when a business is up for sale or under threat. The Marcora Law legislates for the state to utilise specific powers to redirect welfare expenditure towards worker buy-outs – specifically, via a fund which invests in the share capital of a 'phoenix' co-operative, matching up to three times what the employees invest, by capitalising up to three years' unemployment benefit. The employees forgo the right to unemployment benefit during that period, should the co-operative fail. With powers over welfare expenditure, employment, and industrial relations not within the devolved competence of the Scottish Government, the Marcora Law is not directly replicable in the Scottish context.
