The Climate Case against Shell

Despite the climate crisis, Shell continues to pollute. This has to stop. And that’s why we sued Shell. With success! On the 26th of May we won our climate case against Shell. A historic day. Unfortunately Shell will appeal. We are be up against one of the most powerful companies in the world. So we need your help! Help us with what you can spare. Will you join us?

 The judge ruled that Shell has to reduce its Co2- emissions with 45% by 2030. Shell has to start doing this straight away.

We saw the appeal coming, but it does not make the disappointment any less upsetting. Director of Friends of the Earth Netherlands, Donald Pols, stated: “We’re all faced with an enormous task. It’s important for Shell to accept its responsibility and phase out its oil and gas activities. We’d rather see Shell invest its time and energy in achieving its goals as mandated by the court rather than pursue an appeal. This is the only way we can avert catastrophic climate change.”

Climate is also a concern of the courts

If we want to prevent the Earth from warming up more than 1.5°C, we need to take action NOW. And that is only possible if big polluters like Shell participate. That is why we started this lawsuit along with 17,379 co-plaintiffs and 6 other organisations. With your support, we can win!
