On May 26 2021, Milieudefensie won its climate case against Shell. The judge ruled that Shell must have reduced its CO2 emissions by 45% by 2030. What does this mean for Shell as a company? And what about other companies? During this debate, we will discuss the scenarios for the future after this historic moment of jurisdiction. You have the chance to raise your voice as well 

  • Get to know the opinion of experts 
  • Find out what Shell needs for change 
  • Let us know what you think about the lawsuit 

It is undoubtly a historic moment. However, opinions are divided about the result. Shell has to decrease its emissions. But what if they sell certain parts of the company? The emissions of Shell will reduce, but globally the emissions stay the same. On the other hand, companies worldwide are warned as this could result in equal cases against them.
